Using vandal resistant toilets in school can be a better approach than fingerprint scanners
Vandalism is an ongoing problem for many schools toilets, and the costs associated with this can be significant. In addition to the cost of repairs, there is also the cost of lost learning time as a result of students having to be removed from class to clean up the mess. This can have a negative impact on student achievement.
There are a number of ways that schools can address this problem and one of these is by using vandal resistant toilets.
These toilets are designed to be more difficult to damage and easier to clean, which can save the school money in the long run. In addition, they provide a better environment for students, as they are less likely to be disruptive during class time.
In recent news from multiple news papers:
"Sydney school’s use of fingerprint scanners in toilets an invasion of privacy"
“Moorebank high school installed the scanners to prevent vandalism and track student movements after consultation with community focus group.” - The guardian
"Sydney high school uses fingerprint technology to stop vandalism in toilets" - ABC news
The school has been struggling with ongoing issues of vandalism and graffiti in their toilet blocks.
There are many schools who are now considering or have already installed fingerprint scanners in order to prevent students from vandalising toilets and other school property. However, there are a number of reasons why this may not be the best approach.
First of all, fingerprint scanners can be seen as an invasion of privacy. Many students may feel that their privacy is being violated when they have to use these scanners. This could lead to resentment towards the school and make students less likely to cooperate with other rules and regulations.
Secondly, fingerprint scanners can be expensive to install and maintain. If a school is struggling with financial resources, this may not be the best option.
Finally, vandal resistant toilets can be a more effective way to prevent vandalism. These toilets are designed to be more difficult to damage and easier to clean. This can save the school money in the long run, as well as providing a better environment for students.
Overall, while fingerprint scanners may seem like a good solution to the problem of vandalism, there are a number of drawbacks that should be considered.
Vandal resistant toilets may be a better option for schools, as they are less intrusive and more effective.
