Big Brother In The Classroom
I see that Nanny intends to install CCTV into schools, ostensibly to monitor the performance of teachers.
Seemingly some cameras are so powerful that they can pick up what pupils are writing in their exercise books, or what's on their computer screens.
Given the lousy quality of teaching in some schools, and the appalling behaviour of some kids, there is a theoretical case (at a pinch) for this "initiative".
However, I cannot in any way shape or form support this idea.
The UK has more CCTV cameras than any other country in the world, we are rapidly descending into a real live version of Orwell's fiction "1984". Cameras in schools would merely condition children into accepting day to day monitoring, and would be a further step down the road to dictatorship.
This "initiative" should be resisted.
I would also note that given Nanny's obsession with children not being photographed by adults (even parents at school plays and sports days), I am at a loss to understand how she can ignore her own rules about photographs in such an "in your face" manner.
