Creepy school admins spying on kids via webcam…

This is so outrageous I almost don’t know what to say.  I guess just “wow.”  In one school district in PA the school admins are spying on kids with the webcams on computers the kids get through school while at home.  And it came to light when they chose to try and punish a student for conduct while at home.  How creepy is that?

    That’s what happens when you let other people add stuff to your computer.

    One of many reasons that the first thing I do is reload any computer I get. Unfortunately that doesn’t apply to corporate machines, but the last couple of those I have had didn’t have cameras.
