A survey conducted by The Center for Democracy and Technology showed student monitoring and surveillance is expected to increase despite the resumption of in-person learning after the COVID-19 pandemic. Of the 1,008 teachers surveyed, 89% indicated their schools will continue implementing student-monitoring technologies. The survey also revealed monitoring is used more for discipline than safety and monitoring often goes beyond school hours. CDT said education leaders should "consider alternative strategies" for student safety that "do not simultaneously put students’ safety and well-being in jeopardy."
