Surveillance cam's in School

Big Brother is Watching.

First the metal detectors, now this. Yup, They're going to fix cameras all over the place. Sometime soon, I think, Because they've already fixed the wires and stuff. I might even be captured by one next Monday...

WHY??? Are we that dangerous? When was the last time there was a report of even a pocket knife in a school? I doubt many of the students have even seen a gun, let alone posses one. If this was America or someplace, then fine, but here?

Okay, say it isn't about security. What if it's for enforcing discipline? Do we need to go that far to get students to stay in class during school hours? Would not that money be better spent on something like, say, renovating classes? Even if the students WERE so unruly as to require constant vigilance on the part of the administration, surveillance like this would completely ruin the fun that is school. Pretty soon our parents will stop saying "Enjoy your school years, they're the best you'll get". I don't think even prisons here have surveillance yet...

Where's the fun in letting out the air from a particularly despised teachers car tire when you'll be shown photographic evidence of your crime the next day? Or of stealthily avoiding the rector only to be caught on tape?

Good thing I'm only here till next August. I just hope the younger students are able to make the best of it...

…….and there goes not just your privacy but undetected movement….. Unfortunately for you but fortunately for the teacher whose tyres were mysteriously deflated :)
So, you are in your most important year of school. Enjoy it, camera or not!

This is the most important? whoa.. and here I was thinking this year was yet another trudge through the academic career, just with more power to wield among the other, younger guys. ;-)

Is this for real???

The administration must be too paranoid. Do they think that the students are conspiring to take over them? (You are not, are you? ;) )

the_jester said...

Yup, but surprisingly, they've left it at the cables now...

Last time I ckecked, no ;-)

HAH! You people are getting PWND! Maybe they'll just have the wires setup and not have any cameras. That's probably the plan of the rector since the young people of today seem easily beguiled.
