Spy Schools?

In Pennsylvania a high school student’s parents are suing the school district for spying on their family at home through the built-in Web cam on the school-provided laptop. The laptops which are given to all students have software installed that allows the school administration to remotely turn on the built in camera to watch the user. The family suing the school district first discovered they were being spied on when the student was called out by an assistant principle for engaging in improper behavior at home with photos from the Webcam used as evidence. The school district has acknowledged the use of remote Web cam monitoring but only to track lost, stolen, and missing laptops.
