Call it the No Child Left Unsurveilled Act.

On Thursday, federal lawmakers will hold a hearing on a proposal to let public schools use millions in federal grants to blanket the halls of learning with surveillance cameras.

Those grants have typically been used to install metal detectors, lights and locks, as well as paying for security training for students and employees.

The bill adds closed circuit surveillance cameras to the list of items eligible for Justice Department Safe School grants, ups the funding to from $30 million annually to $50 million and increases the feds share of any outlays to 80%, up from the current 50-50 split.

Will this allow parents to see when the security guards handcuff or taze our children? Has there been a problem with a lack of surveilence? It seems that this is not the solution to our broken public education system.

Could this make children safer? I think not. How could we let the government strip our children right to privacy.Years of left-wing politically correct schooling and dumbing down of the people has created a docile, compliant population.

It looks to me that they are trying to covert their butts in case abuse is use against children by our so call protectors of the young.

Is easier to destroy evidence this way.

Still like I have been telling people over and over when news like this comes to light that has to do with the beginnings of what is going to become a new generation of a population growing up with every aspect of their private and public lives been monitored by big brother, do not let this sound like a good idea and for the good and safety of your children, take your kids out of public school and educate them at home.

Stop government from getting more and more into our business and the brainwashing and indoctrination of our future generations.

What is the agenda behind the security cameras in schools, of all places?

To watch kids playing tag?
