School Spies on Students
Posted 2/18/10
So there's this school that recently been discovered to have been spying on its students through the built in webcams in school issued computers. These computers were given out to each and every student to take home and use for the entirety of the school year for both school work and personal use.

Now a little earlier this year, a student was prosecuted for something he did at home with footage taken from his school computer used as evidence against him.

Do you guys think the school should be allowed to do this?

Here's a link to an article with some extra information:

Adults miss their childhoods. They will observe children down to every last detail in some hopeless attempt to relive their own childhoods in their minds while becoming incredibly depraved. Some adults really just want to hurt and exploit children. The older people get, the more interested with the affairs of young people they seem to become. It's fucking insane. Just accept the fact that you will age and eventually die. Move along with a bit of grace in your gradual progression towards the grave. Don't make others suffer for your own inability to cope with the inevitable.

Ew. Yeah I read about this on the BBC website.

You'd think they'd install a tracking chip or something but nooope...

You expect privacy in your own damn bedroom and it's sick if someone's gonna perv on you like that.
Was the kid underage by any chance? Cause I smell a lawsuit brewing.

Has the school ever heard of privacy? I don't think they should be allowed to do that because its none of their business what the students do at home because thats their parents job.
