This is one of the easier issues. Yes, I agree that it's ridiculous to tip-toe around a bunch of things in public schools (K-12) to avoid parent confrontations... but just let the child go to the restroom. If it becomes a problem (they take advantage of that time frequently) you just call their parents and tell them about it. Let them deal with it.

My wife is an elementary (K-5) music teacher. She sees ~200 kids a day (I think), 600 kids in her school. They do take advantage. She's brought this up before, and I gave her the advice above.

It's ridiculous how much CYA public teachers have to do. Some do, some don't. I told my wife, ALWAYS CYA. I'm NOT going to court over some bull**** from a parent.

I'm a teacher, although my students are older than yours.  The only time I have a no-bathroom policy is for short exams in very large classes, and they have a chance to use the facilities prior to and immediately after the exam anyway.

Even during high school Regents exams (state exams here in New York) you are allowed to use the bathroom. You just have to have a teacher or staff member of the appropriate gender go with you.

Up to 10 years old I would say yes. Little ones tend to not pay attention to the need to go to the bathroom during play. However they also will abuse it too. It is one of those no win deals. I think after age 10 you could implement this.
