After installing cameras in students’ bathrooms, the Windsor Charter Academy was met with a fuselage of protest from the parents of those same students.

From Activist Post

Windsor Charter Academy in Colorado is under fire by parents of students for its decision to install cameras in its high school bathrooms, KDVR Fox reported.

Windsor Charter Academy executive director Rebecca Teeples stated that the installation of cameras “improves safety for students while helping secure the building.”

The stalls in the bathroom go from the floor to the ceiling but many worry that it’s still a violation of privacy to put a camera into a bathroom.

“We had surveillance cameras in our plans from the very start. It was part of the design of the new wing,” Teeples said. “We want to make sure our students are safe and secure.”

Parents are up in arms about the decision which they say violates students’ rights to privacy – “The first word that comes to mind is disgusting,” Trevor Garrett said. “I never thought it would be on anyone’s mind to put cameras in bathrooms anywhere.”

Garrett added that he also worries about students who might get changed in the restrooms for after-school activities or other circumstances where students might be exposed outside of the stalls.

“My gut reaction is, I’m a father, I want to protect my children and I’m going to protect any kids in here,” Garrett said. “I think when we sacrifice privacy for the sake of safety, it’s a very slippery slope.”
