Even Prisoners Don’t Have to Beg for Toilet Paper

January 29, 2013



Can you think of anything more demeaning and utterly disrespectful than making students who need to go to the toilet first report to head office to sign for their own toilet roll?

An eastern Pennsylvania high school says vandalism forced it to create a policy in which toilet paper has been taken out of the boys’ bathrooms.

Boys at Mahanoy Area High School now must go to the school office to request toilet paper and sign it out. Principal Thomas Smith says that’s helped solve a major problem of intentionally clogging toilets that’s been going on for two years.

Smith says boys must sign out the toilet paper and then sign it back in. But the Republican-Herald of Pottsville reports ( some parents are protesting the policy.

Parent Karen Yedsena says some students are too embarrassed to go to the office to get toilet paper and are going home sick instead. School officials say they aren’t aware of any such problems.

Two-Year Olds Forced to Have Fingerprints and Mug Shots Taken

September 23, 2012

Talk about an absurd idea!

PRISON staff from scandal-hit security firm G4S took the fingerprints and mugshots of children as young as two who visited inmates at a new jail.

The practice was stopped only after a string of complaints to jail bosses at HMP Oakwood,  a privately run prison in Staffordshire that holds 1,605 offenders. 

The Mail on Sunday has discovered that over-zealous staff forced children who were visiting family members to pose for pictures and have electronic fingerprints taken, which were then stored on a computer at the prison.

The practice, which has drawn strong criticism from prison groups, continued for four weeks  earlier this year until prison governors held an inquiry and put a stop to it.

School Builds Prison Block for Troublemaking Students

September 11, 2012


At least this school doesn’t pretend it’s not a prison:

Furious parents and local councillors today blasted a school after it unveiled plans to build a ‘prison-style’ block for 12 of its most notorious troublemakers.

Tudor Grange Academy in Worcester, West Midlands – which has the second highest expulsion rate in England – has applied to convert a disused office block into an ‘alternative education’ facility.

Anyone else think we have all but given up?
