Today’s poll: Is CCTV in the classroom a good thing?

A NASUWT survey has revealed that one in ten classrooms apparently now have CCTV cameras in them leading to counter claims that, on the one hand they enhance safety for teachers and students and encourage improved behaviour, but on the other that they are an intrusion and being used by some heads to judge teachers. On balance, do you think they are a good thing? If your answer is “yes/no but…”, please share the ‘but’ in the comments or via twitter…
