UK School Surveillance Examined

By: John Honovich, Published on Jul 07, 2009

A video report on UK School surveillance: The debate centers around internal school surveillance - viewing and recording inside of classrooms (audio and video). There is a policy in place that video cannot be reviewed for behavior, incidents or quality of classroom training. Additionally, the system automatically deletes video after 2 days. They cite benefits that cameras protect teachers from false accusations and can help prove to parents that children had an accident rather than were abused by other children. Finally, a survey indicates that 1 in 4 parents wanted access to the surveillance video during the day.
