BUT, it is not the schools business what the kid does at home. and there is an expactation of privacy that we live by.
I completely agree with you, farmer, that this should
be the case. Private is private.
However, there have been cases of private (demeaned "inappropriate") usage of officially school-owned computers (in Oz) which have led to serious problems. A vague recollections of a teacher, who "inappropriately" used his work computer for personal (pornographic, I think) purposes - which somehow kids accessed (
), getting himself into all sorts of strife. I believe he was sacked, as best I can recall. God knows how the law actually works in cases like this.
