Delhi School children’s activities can now be tracked via CCTV cameras
New Delhi: There’s good news for parents of school-going children. The activities of the children can now be seen live as CCTV cameras footages will be transmitted live to parents.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal initiated this project. Under this project, CCTV cameras were installed in Shaheed Hemu Kalli Sarvodaya Bal Vidyalaya, located at Lajpat Nagar on Saturday.
Kejriwal claimed that this project is a milestone in the field of education. For the first time in Delhi, a live feed of CCTV cameras in every classroom will be transmitted on their parents’ mobile.
No other school has initiated this kind of project. Kejriwal added that even though schools have CCTV installed, the footage was never provided to parents.
Kejriwal believes that this is a historical step in terms of the safety of teachers and students. CCTV cameras will soon be installed in all government schools. This will make the entire education system transparent and accountable.
The Delhi Government have started this novel project from the Lajpat Nagar school. 210 CCTV cameras have been installed in the entire school including class, corridor, playground. This facility will be available in all government schools ahead.
On the other hand, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said that the decision was taken after the disturbing death of a child in a private school two years ago. Delhi Chief Minister took this initiative and mandated the CCTV footage transmission to parents.
