that resonates with students: ‘How do we make this article a hit?’ article It’s not every day that a student or an educator makes an article on The College Fix.
But that’s exactly what happened on Saturday.
A few minutes after publishing a story about a local student who was suspended for using a toilet seat to relieve himself, the headline for the piece became: “How do I make this story a hit?”
It’s an apt phrase.
The post has been shared more than 11,000 times.
It didn’t take long for the post to be shared by dozens of friends and family members who shared their own experiences with the student.
Students at a high school in Florida were suspended for doing their best to use toilet seats to relieve themselves in public.
As they sat down at a cafeteria table in front of their classmates, a classmate sat up and took a seat on the toilet seat.
The student then took his seat next to the classmate, who sat down again.
After some discussion about the seating arrangement, the teacher asked the student if he was okay with sitting next to his friend.
“I was, I’m fine with it,” the student said.
While this may seem like a minor matter, it is the latest in a string of controversial instances of students using toilets at school.
Last month, the New York Daily News reported that a 17-year-old student at a public school in Brooklyn was suspended after his parents complained about the school using the bathroom to relieve itself.
And a week earlier, a 16-year old in California was suspended from a public middle school after a teacher was overheard saying, “We are not supposed to have sex, and we are not allowed to use the toilet.”
Last year, students at a middle school in Wisconsin were suspended after they refused to take a shower, a practice that has come under scrutiny in recent years due to concerns about public health and safety.
