A lawsuit against the New York State Education Department is looking to dismantle a $3 million facial recognition system in schools, citing student privacy concerns and the technology's issues with racial and gender bias. 

On Monday, the New York Civil Liberties Union sued the education department over its approval to install facial recognition for the Lockport School District, to use the technology on students and staff. The department approved the facial recognition installation last November, and 수원인계동셔츠룸 it was activated in January. <




The lawsuit (pdf), filed on behalf of parents of Lockport students, argues that the facial recognition system used at Lockport's schools retains biometric data on students and violates the state's privacy protections under New York's Education Law. The state's education department originally approved facial recognition for Lockport's schools because it believed the technology would properly protect students' privacy. 

The NYCLU and parents of Lockport students are seeking to have the system deactivated and removed from schools. The education department said it does not comment on pending litigation. 

"The Lockport facial recognition surveillance system was the product of a Board of Education falling for the sweet talk of a salesman who misrepresented himself as an independent security expert," said Jim Shultz, a Lockport parent and 수원인계동셔츠룸 plaintiff in the suit. "Neither the school district or state education officials gave a thought to the radical impact this would have on student privacy."

, which was supposed to fund educational technology. 

In court documents, parents expressed frustration that the school district spent millions on facial recognition rather than on funds to help students connect online during the coronavirus pandemic. 

The contagious disease has forced students to attend classes online, but that's been a challenge for students without access to stable internet or 인계동가라오케 compatible devices.

"Lockport should have spent the funds it received to purchase and install a face recognition system on actual educational programs and instructional technology," said Renee Cheatham, a plaintiff in the lawsuit and a Lockport parent. "Neighboring districts invested their Smart Schools Bond Act money in iPads and faster internet, while Lockport bought spy cameras."

A CNET investigation found that , even as the industry flocks to sell this technology to educators.
