PA School Spied On Students Via School-Issued Laptop Webcams

"A Pennsylvania high school is using laptops they issued to students to spy on them in homes and outside of school. According to a class action filling the webcams and microphones in these laptops could be remotely activated by school officials, and have been used in this role. One student was accused of 'improper behavior in his home' and the school provided a photo taken via his laptop as proof."

Luckily people under 18 are pretty much regarded as having no rights, and school officials never get in trouble for anything they do, no matter how bat shit insane.

To be fair the school claims this is greatly over blown: 

Edit 2:
It appears the school was almost certainly spying.
