More children wearing diapers to Australian schools

Australia’s Courier Mail reports that children as old as five are being sent to school in nappies because their parents cannot be bothered toilet-training them.

The problem has become so widespread that Education Queensland is drawing up a toilet-training fact sheet amid calls from teachers’ groups that nappy-wearing children be banned from attending school. …

State School Principals Association president Norm Hart has written to Education Queensland, citing concerns that the problem could result in litigation – with teachers possibly accused of molestation.

"Toilet training is a parental responsibility and not something that should be taught at school.”
