    Suit: Pa. school used webcams to spy on students

    link

    PHILADELPHIA – A suburban Philadelphia school district used the webcams in school-issued laptops to spy on students at home, potentially catching them and their families in compromising situations, a family claims in a federal lawsuit.

    Lower Merion School District officials would not comment on the accusation, but angry students have already responded by putting tape on their laptop cameras and microphones.
    This is insane. I hope this school district gets taught a lesson if indeed they are guilty of using these laptops to spy on students and their families.

    How many of these parents do you folks think would sign a California style "this school sucks" petition and fire the principal?

    Is it a mandate that you take the school issued laptop home?.....
    If not, could that be construed as an 'invitation' to enter the home?.....
    I'll bet some of those tapes are pretty interesting....

    My tech school issues laptops for some programs. If they tried a stunt like this they could kiss their business good-by.

    Not without informing the families. Without informing the parents that it could be used in this manner, it could not be construed as an invitation to enter the home.

    Does anyone have a link? This is so preposterous I find it hard to believe a school would be this dumb. Many times there's much more to the story.

    Every once and a while I read a story that makes me wonder if maybe we'd all be better off if people below an IQ of 50 were just put to sleep.

    Because that's how stupid you would have to be to come up with a plan like this.

    edit:
    And, yes, I mean retarded. Literally, you would have to be mentally deficient in some manner that makes you utterly incapable of considering the consequences of your actions to ever consider such a boneheaded move. Do they not understand that if someone under the age of 18 happened to walk by the camera not fully dressed, the administrators could end up in jail?
