School Removes Walls From Girls' Toilets In Controversial Attempt To Combat Truancy @Independent

A high school has created controversy after removing walls from the girls' toilets.

This is understood to be in an attempt to curb truancy and smoking in the cubicles, with the toilet doors now exposed to an open corridor and in clear sight of a CCTV camera and classroom.

The move has cause parents of the children at St Mary's College in Wallasey, UK, to keep their children at home in protest.

The new layout is designed so that pupils cannot hide in the bathroom during lessons, but it appears as though this plan has backfired.

Students have reported feeling "scared and unsafe" while using the facilities.

According to one parent, the school is set to start work on a similar renovation for the boys' toilets next week.
