This chapter addresses new technologies of surveillance in secondary schools, and the implications of such surveillance for race equality, providing new insights into seldom discussed relations of power and education. The ‘war on terror’ has led to new regimes of control involving the limiting of personal freedoms and constant surveillance, in response to the perceived risk of terrorist attacks. In this paper I argue the counter-terrorism agenda is one reason schools have invested in new technologies of surveillance and explore the implications of such surveillance for the way in which students are raced. I apply a framework combining Critical Race Theory with Judith Butler’s thinking on recognisable lives and Agamben’s (2005) state of exception, to analyse how minority ethnic young people are constructed as ‘threatening’.
