Ala. school’s boys bathroom stall doors removed to prevent vaping

News

(WAFF/CNN NEWSOURCE) – A school in Alabama has taken the drastic step of removing the stall doors in some of the boys bathrooms, all to keep kids from vaping.

Wilson High School Principal Gary Horton said every day one of the students will sneak off to a bathroom to vape, and said two weeks ago a student was found passed out in a stall.

Some parents are taking issue with the school’s solution. One says it’s too drastic.

“Me as a parent, personally I think that’s a little excessive,” Brandon Campbell, a parent, said.

“I don’t like it,” Rachel Muncey, another parent, said. “They take their only private place in the school that they can do their business.”

The parents said a better solution would be to have an adult in the hallway or bathroom to make sure no one is vaping.

The principal said the door removals could be temporary as they work to figure out other solutions.
