A very timely blog about school and toilet training

As NSW students and their families prepare for the new school year, this blog post at Practical Wisdom: Phronesis could be very timely for those whose enrolment has been not all been about education and learning. The ever-practical Joan Medlen puts arguments about what toileting should mean to where a child goes to school firmly in their place: into the responsibility of those whose job it is to support the student.

If toilet training and school has not been an issue for you and your child, you don't need to read it.  If it has, you might well find yourself applauding.

On the other hand, the wisdom of this post is in its generalisation to other discussions about accommodating needs.
