The leader of the group pushing this is...wait for it...Karen.  Yes, really.

Bodycams to prevent teachers from teaching.  That's extraordinary... stupid.

Know what they DIDN'T think of? Teachers' unions. Stupid idea rightfully dies before hatched.

Why BODY cameras? Do we really need to see which direction the teacher is facing, what the teacher can see? Do teachers teach in random rooms on random days? Why not fixed cameras/mics in the ceiling?

/Or, you know, not freaking out about this?
//Maybe letting the teachers teach and dealing with complaints afterwords?
///Not like you're going to have someone monitoring the footage in real time, right?

Detach the bodycam and put it in a box pointing at a picture of goatse.  Then laugh "Ha ha, you looked at goatse" when they review the footage.

OBVIOUSLY they want to catch the teachers making social justice-oriented cultural marxist comments when they're walking the kids through the hallway or yelling at them on the playground. Elementary school teachers are devious and will memorize the blind spots, which basically guarantees they will try to get the third graders through as much of Das Kapital as possible while they're fetching them from the cafeteria.

It's a whataboutism reaction to the idea of police being held accountable by body cameras.

How about we put body cams on anyone paid by state or federal governments?
Make it a blanket policy. That way, nobody feels left out.


Can't wait to see that sweet, sweet DMV body-cam footage.

Oh, jeeze, she's 19.  She dropped out in Freshman and Junior years to pursue a singing career.

They want the conservative narrative taught over recorded history and facts. Conservatives don't like it that facts has a liberal bias.

Children should report an adults teaching them Critical Race Theory to the authorities, even parents.
 
2021-06-11 11:10:36 AM  
As an educator, there is absolutely no reason to have a camera in a room unless you're working with profoundly disabled students who cannot advocate for themselves. Can you imagine how stressful it would be for you to perform your deeply personal profession knowing that an administrator can be watching you? It's a violation of not only my rights as a public employee but also the students right to be surveilled

But then again I'm not trying to force restrictions on people so I'm not super interested in controlling every thought
 
2021-06-11 11:10:38 AM  
Sure, do that when all priests and protestant ministers wear body cams around children.
 
2021-06-11 11:11:08 AM  
It's more likely a poison pill. Everyone says it's a stupid idea to mic up teachers, so hey, while we're at it, the police union uses the momentum to get rid of the cop cameras too.
 
2021-06-11 11:11:09 AM  
I guess it's a good thing after all that bodycams always seem to fail at critical moments, or happen to have been turned off just when you think they shouldn't be.

Ah well - I guess we'll never know what students might have learned in those moments.

I was at the gym last night. The treadmill next to mine had a TV set to Faux. Whatever program went with the chryon "TEACHERS INDOCTRINATING STUDENTS" and other bullshiat about critical race theory.

Just think of the footage of Matt Gaetz and Roy Moore picking up their dates for the weekend.

You know who need bodycams? Politicians. 24/7 with a GPS tag on their ass.
 
2021-06-11 11:14:50 AM  
You know. I think I get it.

These people don't want to have the uncomfortable conversations when their child comes home and realizes their parent and/or family are racist assholes. Can't have kids thinking for themselves.

JFC, and they call us snowflakes. These people literally want to tear down democracy and all sacred institutions simply because they can't handle the idea of treating a Black person with the respect and dignity they deserve.
 
2021-06-11 11:15:42 AM  
I still remember all the racist shiat I was taught when I was in school and I didn't even realize it at the time because it was pre-internet.

It's so sad that there are so many insane white people that need to be sent to private prisons because they are literally a danger to society.

"Opponents of the Washoe County School District curriculum proposal, according to the AP, camped outside of a board meeting on Wednesday, carrying signs reading 'no CRT' and 'CRT teachers racism,'"

I think I've finally figured out why I find all of this community paranoia about Critical Race Theory so funny: The way in which conservative organizations constantly misrepresent what Critical Race Theory means (and its moral implications) strongly reminds me of all the misrepresentations of the theory of evolution that I heard growing up.

"Evolution teaches kids that we're really just animals following our urges and that there's no God and nothing matters so there's no reason not to go and rapemurder everyone if you feel like it! How can we let the government put this poison into the minds of our children?"

And, of course, by this point the Karens of the world are so certain that their caricature of Critical Race Theory is accurate that they assume you're executing some sort of nefarious plan if you even try to explain that maybe possibly they have some of the details wrong.

Idea: put bodycams on teachers to keep them from teaching. Told you I'm an idea man, Chuck.

I think it's generally a mistake to assume that one evil motive precludes another, separate evil motive.

The Irony in this "Answers in Genesis" billboard is that Genesis does not in any way discourage violence in the name of God.
