Medlin Middle School Bathrooms
Why It's a Problem
We asked students and a teacher what their thoughts were on our restrooms. The results were very similiar.
Morgan, a 7th grader at Medlin, said that she was "uncomfortable using the bathrooms" because they are "gross" and "un-private."
Cassidy, another 7th grader at Medlin, said that she thought the bathroom "smelt bad", are "unsanitary", and "digusting."
Colton, our last 7th grader from Medlin, doesn't appriciate the "graffiti", and thinks that they are "very gross."
Finally, Coach Perrin, a 7th grade TX History teacher, considers the restroom as "smelly", "outdated", and "dysfunctional."
On October 3rd 2011 there was a report on CNN new that was about school bathrooms conditions. in the report it states, "When you visit your child’s school, do you poke your head into the bathrooms? Do you ask your child about the cleanliness of those bathrooms? You might be surprised to learn how your child tries to avoid going to the bathroom at school." Which this shows that people have tried to resolve and report this problem but cleary it hasn't helped.
