“Public education should empower our children, not indoctrinate them,” Chase insists; Advocates for transparency & parents rights over social agendas & partisan interests.

Barrow County, GA — Charlie Chase III, Republican challenger for the newly redrawn State Senate 47th District, is calling on the Georgia Department of Education to install closed-circuit cameras (CCTV) in every classroom across the state so parents can see what their children are being taught by the state’s public school system.

According to data collected by the National Center for Education Statistics, cameras are used to monitor classrooms and students in more than 80 percent of American public schools and more than 94 percent of high schools. Cameras in classrooms, common areas and elsewhere in public schools ultimately enhance safety and accountability, and enable administrators to more quickly and effectively respond to emergencies situations.

“With our children back in classrooms, parents deserve the right to monitor what our youngest citizens are being exposed to behind those hallowed doors. I am asking the Georgia Department of Education to install closed-circuit cameras in every public school classroom, enabling parents to witness through secure links what is being taught by teachers in grades K – 12,” Chase said. “No one has any greater authority to shape the education and future of any child in the state of Georgia than his or her parents. Cameras in public school classrooms will empower parents to make positive, informed decisions in raising and best educating their children.”

“Our children are the future of the state of Georgia. They should not be subject to social agendas or educated in secret,” Charlie Chase said. “Cameras ensure transparency and opportunity. Their presence in the classroom will bring much-needed sunlight to our public school system.”

Chase wants funds from the Georgia State Lottery to pay for installation of classroom camera infrastructure, software, maintenance and updates.
