Cameras in the Classrooms
Advocacy isn’t the main purpose of A Special Space. Education for both NTs and those with ASDs is our focus. But after reading one too many stories today about bullying and abuse of special needs children by teachers, advocacy and education have combined.
It’s time to educate my state and the nation about the importance of giving a voice to those who have none. It’s time to advocate for cameras in the classrooms.
Teachers are an amazing gift to our children. They work hard, love our kids, and guide them on their journey in life—most of them. The few that make the news are the ones who are burnt out, stressed out, under-educated, under-supported and have no business in the classroom. They, the few, are hurting our children and giving other teachers a bad name.
For the protection of our children and the teachers, it’s time for legislation to happen to mandate the use of cameras in special needs classrooms. Parents shouldn’t have to hook their children up with wires and microphones to find out what is happening during school hours. Kids shouldn’t have to endure humiliation and abuse from those who we pay to teach and care for our children. Teachers shouldn’t have to try to protect themselves from false accusations. It’s enough!
Let’s have cameras in our classrooms nationwide. Let’s give our kids a voice.
