Keith Olbermann asks, and the Dallas Tea Party answers. Some on my friends list have also been wondering the same thing. Well wonder no more.

ACLU and EFF Speak Out Against School Webcam Spying

 

Things are really heating up in the Robbins et. al versus Lower Merion School District lawsuit, with the ACLU today issuing an Amicus brief (available in PDF) this morning, supporting the plaintiff’s request that the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania issue an immediate restraining order enjoining the school district from any further spying. Late this afternoon , an attorney for the plaintiff confirmed that an agreement was reportedly finalized to stop the monitoring while preserving evidence for the lawsuit.

Now let me get this straight.  The school states their policy is to activate the webcam remotely only in the event the laptop is reported as stolen.  Presumably this is to facilitate recovery of the laptop.  According to a statement, the webcams have been activated 42 times and only for this purpose.

However, the student in this case was disciplined for "inappropriate behavior" that was observed when the webcam on his laptop was remotely activated in his home.  The vice principal presented an image recorded with the webcam as evidence.  By definition, this is a violation of the school's policy and a direct contradiction of the school's statement.

Somebody's lying.
