Schools have to assess students educational performance.
Do they spy on their students maths exercises ? No they look at them in detail in order to assess them, and provide feedback.
So do they:
(a) "spy on" their students use of computers ? or do they
(b) look in detail at their use of computers in order to assess them and provide the necessary feedback to improve there future performance.
I think the latter and I think it is essential, and I strongly object to the description of "spying" being applied to perfectly legitimate educational supervision of any and all student performance in schoolwork activities.

I don't think that spying is appropriate, honestly. If schools don't want kids on certain sites, I think that blocking the sites on school computers should suffice.
What goes on after school is none of the school's business. This is up to the parents to take care of; not the school.
Well, seeing as school computers are generally for educational use I guess it would be appropriate. I remember my highschool, the computer had some software installed where the teacher could basically take over your computer, see everything you are doing, or send you a message on it.
no they shouldn't. but at this day and age, with all the suicid(e) rates and bullying outside of school, they need to keep an eye on their students to protect them. Its probably not something that u want to hear, but if u use a school computer, prepare to be monitored.
What she is talking about the news that this one school had software that would allow them to operate the camera when the computer was on. It was then used to spy on kids in the bedroom by people who should not have been using the software, and yes I think it is wrong.
NO! The 5th amendment says we have the privilege against self-incrimination, which provides protection for the privacy of personal information. With them watching you who knows what they could pick up in a casual conversation..
Not spying. School computers must be provided with these software blocking any link to: ter rorism, pornography, and the kind. Even parents must be invited to do the same to their PC at home. That is what we do here.
Oh, at home, no way. That would be a definite invasion of privacy. What a student does outside the school has nothing to do with the school or teacher, of course with the exception of some cases.
no they should not be aloud. What a person looks up on their computer on their own time is their business as long as it doesn't break the law (child p*rn and what not)
no- that territory belongs to the parents to enforce.
as long as they are using a computer at home the school would have no jurisdiction.
No Chris I'm talking about I just heard on the news they want to spy on kids facebook pages and other social networks
Should they be ALLOWED to spy on students when THEY'RE USING their computers at home. And obviously that is illegal.
Depends if the student is at home or school. If they're at school then yes but definitely not at home.
Ok let me rephrase: should they be aloud to spy on students when their useing their computers at home?
Well I think if the kid put somthing online they should expect for anyone to see it...
i heard about that to, sorry for an confussion, guess I shud have been more specific
The computers in my Info class are set up like that, and it's SUPER annoying.
Well the one I was talking about was on the news as well to, but no again.
They want to make it so teachers and priciples can spy on the students
If they are using the schools computers then of course.
if they are using the schools computers- yes.
no, that is the parents job!
