I actually think that one of the reasons why some teachers, and I think it's a small subset of the profession, are so stingy with the bathroom breaks is that they've been conditioned to think that it's somehow OK to deny someone a bathroom break.

I also have to say that I'm surprised that there are schools that have "bathroom breaks" in elementary school. My school does them with the 3 year olds, and with the 4's and K's during the first few weeks, but beyond that we don't take them en masse, and certainly not in the upper elementary grades. Kids go when they need to go, with reasonable limits, IMO, such as not during mini lessons unless it's an emergency (mini lessons last about 10 - 15 minutes at the start of each class), not during fire drills, and no more than 2 kids of the same gender out of a class to use the bathroom at a time.
There were never any "bathroom breaks" penciled in the schedule or anything, but any teacher who is reasonable and doesn't want 10 different kids asking if they can go to the bathroom during class is probably going to make a stop by the bathroom on the way back to class from lunch, gym, recess, etc. Besides the fact that it makes sense to take a bathroom break while the whole class is near the bathroom, it's good for the kids to know, "Well, after lunch we'll stop by the bathroom so I don't need to ask right now." They kind of know when they'll have another chance to go just like they know when they're going to eat lunch. I never told a kid they HAD to go during a break, but they knew if they didn't go then I really didn't wanna see them going to grab the bathroom pass 10 minutes later. There's a big difference in not needing to go to the bathroom and not wanting to stop what you're doing to go to the bathroom because you're not about to bust.

Now see vomit sends chills down my spine, I would rather hear puked. Funny how certain words bother people.
