I was wondering about your thoughts and potential experiences with video camera recording your classrooms. Our new superintendent is suggesting he would like to see cameras in the classroom. While at first I thought this may be a good idea, (i.e. recording student behavior) I began to rethink my stance and be leery of what we wish for. First of all, I believe this would open the floodgates of ridiculous amounts of scrutiny, imagine having to explain yourself on a day, and heaven forbid, your class was not running at 100%. And it would not be the scrutiny from just admin, it could come from parents too. Additionally, I believe this undermines the credibility of teachers. Not too long ago, if the adult said something happened in the classroom that was the end of it. Now if a teacher says something happened, some feel obliged to ask Little Johnny, “Is that what happened?” Of course it did, that is what I, the teacher, the adult, said happened! Hopefully some of you will be willing to shares some thoughts on this.
