Should school districts place cameras in the classroom?   The Serious You: How Current Events Affect You

I believe there are two purposes for the latest idea to put cameras in the classroom.  One is to make sure teachers are teaching what the district wants them to teach and the other is to monitor whether they are teaching critical race theory which a lot of parents feel is either harmful to children or not necessary.

They are already watched nearly all the time. About the only thing that is private are their thoughts.

And just like the everpresent telescreens, there are those analyzing them for any facial telltales that they have any secret thoughts hidden from the Thought Police.

He did not know how long she had been looking at him, but perhaps for as much as five minutes, and it was possible that his features had not been perfectly under control. It was terribly dangerous to let your thoughts wander when you were in any public place or within range of a telescreen. The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself — anything that carried with it the suggestion of abnormality, of having something to hide. In any case, to wear an improper expression on your face (to look incredulous when a victory was announced, for example) was itself a punishable offence. There was even a word for it in Newspeak: FACE-CRIME, it was called.

There are people who claim they can read thoughts by watching expressions.

While they really can't, what is frightening is that those can convince others that they can and then convince those to take actions based on what they claim that a 3rd party may be thinking. Seems like a really devastating way to eliminate enemies and rivals and further an agenda, kind of like what happened during the Salem witch trials that ultimately turned out to be based on false testimony.

You wonder if there is any parallel between the trials and what happens now.  Or we would if it wasn’t just a conspiracy theory.  Have you noticed how often people come up with a good argument, it’s only a conspiracy?

And who would want to teach in that district?

Teachers who like the district and their jobs.  Police wear body cams. Why not teachers?

Because they won't like their districts and jobs so much anymore.

Oh definitely I have noticed a lot of parallels.

did you hear the new radio program that replaced Rush Limbaugh's slot on the air today? First inaugural program. A caller got a conversation started about how many people are afraid to speak out what they really think, because they don't want to risk their livelihood, their academic grades / transcript that affects their employability if they are still in school, and those who don't want to be involuntarily forced into early retirement should woke management discover what he or she really thinks.

Like this article talks about:
