Apples and oranges

Yes, if that is the case then the school really stepped in it. I would be curious if it was spelled out in paperwork that the school may logon when the laptops were assigned to the students. But here we are talking about cameras installed in public with views of public areas, not laptops.

So they knew they could be monitored when they got the computer.
