It's not the school's business what the kids do at home. If they don't get a job, that's on them, that's their f*ckin' fault.
Also, if the school never did any wrong, the VP wouldn't have the photo to prove that what they did was inappropriete.

That's horrible! I hope that school is ashamed! If they don't have anything better to do then spy on students, then they obviously are a very bad learning society >:O That's outrageous!

"The school admits that there was spyware installed on students laptops that allowed for remote, covert activation of their webcams, but maintains that the measure was only to be used in the event of theft of the machine (some had speculated that the school was only able to surveil students' hard drives, and that the images of a student engaged in "misconduct" in his home that a vice-principal confronted the student with had been taken by the student, intentionally, and stored on the laptop's hard-drive, from which it was retrieved by the school administration - - this now seems not to have been the case). The school also claims that the system can only capture still images, not audio or video."
