Need more data before condemning the school. For example, what if it were this scenario:
1. School has remote admin software on all its laptops (this is not at all uncommon)
2. Student was VPN into school network, and their IDS, firewall, or otherwise network security monitors detected the student trying to hack into their
servers or some other unauthorized access.
3. Upon detecting the unauthorized activity, they immediately determine what IP address the intrusion is coming from. Know full well the kid would
just say "it wasn't me", "my brother did it", etc, they activate his webcam and take a snapshot which thus proves it was the student at the
keyboard at the time of the intrusion.
Given the above scenario, would you still condemn the school?
I would like to believe it was something like this, because why in the world would school administration sit around after-hours or on weekends etc,
watching all their students via webcam, and then making claims against them for something they saw them doing in their room or something? That is
absurd, so I suspect it is something like the example scenario. I hope so anyhow!
