Teacher suspended after refusing to let student go to the bathroom....
CLEARWATER, Fla. -- A Florida high school teacher who refused to let a student go to the restroom has been recommended for suspension.
The student instead used a trash can to relieve himself in a classroom closet.
The Pinellas County school system said Lesley Campbell violated school policy in November by unnecessarily embarrassing the high school junior.
Campbell said the teenager indicated he might use the trash can if she didn't let him go, but said she was astonished when he actually grabbed the can and headed for the closet.
Campbell teaches English and has taught at Clearwater High for 20 years.
She has requested a hearing on the recommended suspension.
