Fascinating Technology and Security Information

A Life Time of Surveillance Starting in Schools

2 min read

Students are under surveillance 24/7.  After the shootings in so many schools from Columbine in 1999 to the Virginia Tech Shooting in 2007 to Sandy Hook Elementary and then the recent shooting at Reynolds High School makes us all worried about our children.  The result of this is tighter security controls within the schools themselves.   This is really necessary and I applaud the efforts; however, how far should we go.  Since the Columbine shootings, there has been a monumental change in the way students are monitored daily.  There is the massive amount of surveillance that has been imposed upon our children in schools.  This type of monitoring includes Physical security, Video Security, Social Media Surveillance, and Internet Censorship.  Some of these technologies even data mine students information.  This can cause other problems in the future making students more conditioned to the everyday invasion into their lives.  Even though  most of this may be necessary, what is next?
