What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? New York
My wife is the Special Education teacher in an inclusion class. The class has a General Education teacher, Special Education teacher and asistant. Without going into all of the details the other teacher and assistant have been undermining my wife in the classroom. My wife has gone to the Principal and Union rep. but the school is under an audit by the state and there is much chaos. The Principal and Union rep keep telling my wife to just work it. Recently a parent reported to the Principal that her child told her that the teachers were arguing in the classroom. The Principal is taking the position that both teachers are at fault and plans to give a poor evaluation to both teachers. I think this is extremely unfair to my wife since she has had an impeccable record for the past 20 years. She is at the point of wanting to put a hidden camera in the classroom to record the behavior of the other teacher and assistant to show how they are deliberately undermining her and interfering with her class instruction. What are the risks of putting a hidden camera in the classroom for this purpose?
