    Should we have CCTV in every school classroom to prevent crime and other incidents e.g., accusal of sexual harassment?

    Please, please include an argument as to why you agree or disagree.

    No, i don't think there should be. I think my school was pretty close to that though - difficult to tell as most of the cameras are hidden.

    No, because cases such as sexual harrassment are rare, and schools are not prisons.

    No! because things like that are usually one offs. Plus the money that will be spent purchasing, installing and monitoring CCTV cameras can be put to better use, for example, better training for teachers (not on how to teach, but on how to deal with said incidents in the classroom).

    No, it's a ridiculous idea. It's pointless and expensive.

    If they were, accusations pupils make can be proven or disproven, and parents could see how their children are interacting and behaving in class. It does seem rather far-fetched, have to agree-but after recent experiences I've had in my lessons, I would love to show some pupils' parents footage of their sprogs' behaviour. However the problem is with lack of disciplinary powers and behaviour-the cameras wouldn't 'solve' this as such.

    NO, ever heard of "innocent till proven guilty"?? Same principle, lesser scale. Dont invade the privacy of those who dont offend just to catch the minority that do.

    No, Pupils will feel that school is like prison and that they have n o privacy ( And hey you ever did the odd silly thing which was quite harmless but could get you in a lot of trouble ) CCTV would pick this up and i think would just spoil school ( Im not saying school is a place to doss or much about )

    On a similar note: To fight domestic violence, I suggest a ban on curtains and cellars. And a law that all new buildings must be constructed using glass and other transparent materials.

    IMO CCTV should be in every school classroom because if there isn't then it can't be reported unless theres an actual place to report it.

    That's not a great analogy since there's no presumption of privacy in a school, unlike one's private property.

    No. Is there really that much crime in schools? I don't think so.
