    If MY kids school administration told me...

    "For your child to pass this class, he must use a school provided computer. No privately owned computer will be allowed. In addition, this computer that we require your child to use has a web cam that we may activate at any time, no matter where the computer is. If it's a school day, or weekend, or 8 PM it makes no difference. We will be able to see what is happening in your house, your car, your kitchen, your bathroom, bedroom, or any place else this computer may go. We will also be able to see anyone else in your household who may be within view of the camera."

    There would be a parent uprising. There would be hundreds of parents storming the school. Of course in this case it seems no one was really informed of just what the school had the ability to do. And it's pretty clear to see why!
