Schools //

Are schools an authoritarian conditing system?  It seems so from the stories hitting the press. In the Belleville school system a highly rated and tenured teacher was suspended simply for answering student questions about the new surveillance system. That was not the only problem with the surveillance system.  Another teacher was locked into a bathroom by the system and could only get help at the end of the school day.
