A North Carolina middle school removed bathroom mirrors due to an increase in students making TikTok videos during class time.

The school reported a rise in restroom visits, leading to the removal of mirrors to reduce distractions.

The school is also implementing a digital hall pass system to track student whereabouts.

“Students were going to the bathroom for long periods of time and making TikTok,” Alamance-Burlington School System spokesperson Les Atkins said.

The school has observed “not as many visits to the bathroom, not staying as long, and students are held accountable, and when there’s accountability, you see a great difference.”

“We’re trying to educate students. Like we all have cell phones now. We have to learn to use them. We have to learn when to put them down,” he said.

“We strive to limit distractions so students can focus on learning,” Southern Alamance Middle School stated. “Though this is an adjustment, we believe these changes will foster a better learning environment by minimizing disruptions.”

Experts have raised concerns about TikTok’s influence on youth, with some states implementing measures to limit its use.

This move has sparked a broader debate about tech addiction and parenting.
