You have to wonder what kind of people become teachers. Take Moredon Primary school in Swindon, Wiltshire.
I presume the head teacher Anna Willcox is an intelligent, down to earth, kind of person.
So explain this. Why did she decide to make its toilets gender neutral without bothering to tell the parents.
When the parents found out they went potty as it meant the urinals in the boys’ toilets remained in use despite girls being allowed in.
One parent said; ‘’It makes kids think it’s normal to be sharing toilets with other sexes but when you go out you can’t do that.
Neither Asda or McDonald’s have gender free toilets so why does the school think it’s acceptable.’’

The only reason the parents found out was because the kids came home and told them. The parents struggled to get answers from Ms Willcox who has stopped spending her mornings in the playground since the change was brought in, plus she's not returning calls or has gone home early if parents go to her office.
Even if she has gone to ground she has now changed her decision. In her statement she said the school believes in ‘’equality’’ for all children. Big deal. Who doesn’t.
She added; ‘’With the best of intentions for two days we made a change to school policy. On reflection we recognised we didn’t take the best approach. We’ve listened to the feedback from some of our parents and made a further adjustment to our policy.
‘’We now have both unisex and single sex toilets in school.’’
Miss Willcox should learn from the incident. Consult the parents. By and large they are smarter than the staff room.
And a lot less liberal.
