Link Love: Big Brothers (of two different types)

A U.S. school district issued laptops to students, then used the built-in webcams to spy on students. How does an administrator even begin to think that could be legal?

It’s true, my school also monitored innapropriate behaviour at home. But then, I was home schooled, so it was fairly easy for the school administration to identify when one student was wrestling a younger sibling “student” into a half-nelson. The crashes, thumps, and anguished howls gave it away.
