Did not think to contact the teacher that very day and get clarification? I communicate with my daughter's teacher all the time. Via email mostly.
You said you would not jump to conclusions, but yet you started this thread and jumped to conclusions immediately. Your daughter is obviously giving
you very wrong information causing you to needlessly freak out. Maybe notices were sent home with kids and she didn't not bring it to you. There are
so many what ifs and and maybes in this alleged story.
Every good forum moderator should know that it's best to read a member's introductory thread carefully before making accusations that are false.
The information in this thread was provided to me last night around 10 p.m., which is obviously not during school hours. I stated in the OP that the
info had just been given to me and that I was going to follow up with it in the morning, which I have done via telephone. I should be hearing back
from the school shortly. Hooray for you that you are so diligent at keeping in touch with your child's teacher, though.
I understand what you're saying about the flat screen t.v. in relation to the operation of a webcam, however, I am simply relaying the information as
it was given to me by my daughter. It may not be a television at all . . . perhaps it's just a monitor. What I do know is that (as I also explained
in my OP) her teacher told her that a small pop-up window would occasionally appear on the screen, which would indicate the room was being
My daughter is 12 and is very level headed and perceptive about people and her surroundings. I believe I also stated earlier that her teacher is not
known for being one to kid around with the students. While it's certainly understandable that some may presume she is ill-informed or pulling a
prank, I know this is not the case. If there was a chance of that, I would never have started the thread.
I also explained in my OP that I was reserving my judgment about what was occurring until further investigation. Do you remember reading this
Like I said, I don't know if this is, indeed, what is happening at my child's school,
I did speculate about what the potential might be for a "Big Brother" situation after locating some info on the internet that confirmed this
activity has occurred at other schools. I also provided links to those sites.
This is not allowed on ATS, or one is deemed to be "freaking out" for no good reason?
Either way, I find your approach to my thread offensive, given the fact it appears you didn't really pay attention to what I wrote in the OP before
you started accusing me of things. Not the best impression to give in light of the fact you are a forum moderator.
