The question often arises “What were they thinking?!” Or, more often, in my own mind “What was I thinking!?” In my experience the answer to such questions (expecially the latter) is invariably “Thinking? There was no thinking involved.”
But there must have been some thought involved at the Lower Merion School District in a Philadelphia suburb. They managed to enable themselves to spy on the students, even when the students were at home, through the laptop webcams. This did not just happen.
This leads to the question “How did these people come to be in charge of educating our children?”
Nothing leads a child down the straight and narrow like the feeling of not being trusted, right?
