Students of a Pennsylvania school district are hauling educators to court over allegations that administrators remotely activated the webcams on school-issued laptops and used that remote access to spy on students and their family members.
Previously, the Lower Merion School District has insisted that they only ever spied on lost or stolen school-owned laptops. The latest court filings show this is patently false. School for spies, or spies for school, you decide.
At least one school district feels that giving laptops to students is a terrible idea, and these are the reasons why.
By the time Jerry Crocamo, a computer network engineer, arrived in Hoboken’s school system in 2011, every seventh, eighth and ninth grader had a laptop. Each year a new crop of seventh graders were outfitted.

For public schools, classes typically begin at 8am and let out around 5pm, said Joo Yeongju, a third-year student at Eunpyeong public high school in Seoul.
