The world’s most dangerous surveillance technology is invading our schools and putting our children at risk. School systems across the country are quietly spending millions conducting unethical experiments with facial recognition software, using it to scan, analyze, and collect sensitive biometric information on tens of thousands of students, parents, teachers, and staff.

Facial recognition technology isn’t safe. It’s biased, and more likely to misidentify students of color. It’s invasive, enabling anyone with access to the system to watch our movements, analyze our facial expressions, monitor who we talk to, and even track how many times we go to the bathroom.

Publicly they claim this is about security, but school administrators are already bragging about using this technology to target students for being late or minor rule breaking. Minority students are more likely to end up on watch lists or to get falsely arrested because of an error in the system.

We have to stop this. Violating our children’s basic rights won’t make them safer. Fill out the form to add your name to the open letter calling on lawmakers and school administrators to stop experimenting on our children with dangerous surveillance technology.
