Link below... Basically, there's a school district in Pennsylvania that provides all their high school students with a laptop. What they did not tell the parents or the students when they signed for them was that they had a security feature enabled where they could, remotely, turn on a webcam on the laptop and record the students in their homes. They claim that this is so that any lost or stolen computers can be recovered, but it was discovered when the school accused a student of doing drugs in his room (he was eating Mike and Ike candy), and they had images of him doing this because they used the webcam to record him. The interview I saw with the parents said they had NEVER reported the laptop as lost or stolen.
Here's an internet link to the story, if you would like to read more about it. I first saw it covered on the news.

How stupid can that principal be? She has to be somewhat educated and know something about politics and law....and even if you didn't it obviously immoral to go peeping into someones bedroom. Not only is it a disgusting envasion of privacy but incredible stupid of them to think they could just go up to a kid and say yeah I caught you doing drugs while I was illegally spying on a minor in his bedroom.
