A Texas mother, Sonja Cross, is upset with a local elementary school after learning her son was not allowed to use the bathroom because he had not earned allowance,
The J.O. Davis Elementary teacher requires students to pay for trips to the toilet with “Boyd Bucks,” fake money used to reward the children for good behavior.
Cross learned about the “pay system” after her 7-year-old son returned home upset and embarrassed over peeing his pants in front of his peers because he did not earn enough “money” to use the bathroom.
After learning about the incident, Cross spoke to school administrators who told the unidentified teacher to stop using the system.
The teacher is not facing any disciplinary action.
