UK Parents Are Up In Arms Over CCTV’s in Toilets
British parents are protesting after they have learned that some British schools have installed surveillance cameras in their toilets. This has taken surveillance to a new level and some parents are up in protest, arguing that the practice violates the rights and privacy of the children.
More than 800 cameras are located in about 200 schools across the country. Some schools have a ratio of one camera for every 15 students. The parents are protesting and demanding to know who gets access to the videos and who controls the cameras.
Here is a part of the article that appeared on Yahoo, “Nick Pickles, director of Big Brother Watch, said: “This research raises serious questions about the privacy of schoolchildren across Britain, with some schools having one camera for every five pupils and hundreds of schools using cameras in toilets and changing rooms.
“The full extent of school surveillance is far higher than we had expected and will come as a shock to many parents. Schools need to come clean about why they are using these cameras and what is happening to the footage. Local authorities also need to be doing far more to reign in excessive surveillance in their areas and ensuring resources are not being diverted from more effective alternatives.”
