  Webcams to catch bad behaviour in class
Updated 25 February 2003, 07.34
Classroom
Pupils who mess about in class could be caught on camera.

There are plans to put webcams in five Manchester schools to make sure kids behave properly.

The city's education bosses say parents would be amazed at how badly kids can behave sometimes.

Spy worries

And if they saw their children messing about in class for real they might be able to do something about it.

It's usually only a few kids who won't listen in class or talk back to the teacher but it's enough to disrupt lessons for everyone.

But some people say webcams would be like spying and teachers would feel uncomfortable being watched as well.
