The government of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is working on the every possible move that can bring the change in the overall picture of the education. In this regard the government of the province has issues notice to the boards to install the CCTV cameras in the examinations halls in the province where the students are all set to appear in the examinations of matriculation.
The move is commendable for the sake of transparency to bring in the examinations system but the system also brings huge load of the responsibilities. There are chances where the footages from the CCTV cameras will create confusions for the students, parents and teachers.
Who will ensure that the invigilation staffs who is explaining a question to a student’s is not helping them. If a case or complaint is filed, who will collect the footages from the cameras and how will they be able to decide in the situations like the mentioned above. The load shedding is the problem, what if there is no electricity supply for the cameras during the time of examinations, and how will they get footages. How is it possible for a camera to mention that a student is cheating? How the video will check that the invigilators which are checking the students to get into the examination halls are mere checking them or putting some chits into their pockets.
These questions are what the government needs to think and develop a system which answers these kinds of answers properly. Without these things consideration, the installation of the CCTV cameras is mere the wastage of time and resources. Since the notification has been issued to the schools to manage to install the CCTV cameras on their own, these are the questions which are posed by a keen observer.
