Parental backlash has one Oregon school rethinking its "pay to potty" policy.

At one elementary school in Lebanon, Oregon, kids used "super pro" bucks to use the restroom if they didn't use their other restroom breaks wisely. Administrators say this cuts down on kids repeatedly leaving the classroom and missing instruction.

After parents spoke out against the policy, the school nixed the practice but says teachers can take away recess time for children who repeatedly miss classroom time to use the restroom.
