Stop Student Surveillance (2019)

Companies are increasingly marketing biometric surveillance technology, like facial recognition software, as the answer to school safety concerns – and a growing number of schools in New York State are showing interest. But invasive surveillance does nothing to improve school safety and makes students feel like suspected criminals in their own classrooms.

This legislation, A 6787 (Wallace)/S 5140 (Kavanagh), will keep facial recognition and other biometric surveillance technology out of schools and require a study of the impact of this technology in schools.

As bold as the spirit of New York, we are the NYCLU.
