Classroom cameras must be installed in Frederick County

April 27, 2022

Once again, our state legislators have failed our most vulnerable children, killing a bill that would have required cameras to be installed in special education classrooms. Introduced for the third straight year, the bill would have required installing cameras in all self-contained special ed classrooms over the next two years. Lori Scott, vice president of The Arc Maryland and a leading advocate for the legislation, told News-Post reporter Jillian Atelsek that the House of Delegates “murdered the bill” by changing it to a pilot program for just 10 schools before passing the amended version 128-4. That stripped-down version never got a hearing in the state Senate.
