When the security of others becomes involved in certain situations, suddenly liberty or privacy does not seem so important. Even though many students feel that security cameras would invade their privacy, schools should have security cameras because students would feel more protected. Security camera is an effective medium to reduce the increasing crime and to control the situation.
Students think of security cameras as an invasion of their privacy. Students would feel uncomfortable with the fact of a stranger watching their every move throughout the day. Many of them oppose the need for cameras protecting them since less than 1% of all homicides among school-aged children occur in or around school grounds or on the way to and from school.
