Transcript of Big Brother Is Watching You

Big Brother Is Watching You Have schools gone too far with privacy invasion? Harriton High School
Lower Merion School District Blake Robbins Mike & Ikes? or Linda Matsko Privacy in the Workplace video surveillance,
telephone monitoring
email monitoring

Employers are not required by law to disclose to their employees the existence of such monitoring, The Fourth Amendment “the right of people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures,” while the fourteenth gives people, “equal protection of the law,” protecting them harassment and protecting the right to privacy. Violation? Monarch High School
Denver, CO Administrators took a student’s cellular phone and began reading his text messages, some of which mentioned marijuana. They shortly thereafter confiscated the cell phones of his friends, and the information obtained was recorded in the personal file McCracken County School District Removed Tracking Software from laptops
after hearing about the Lower Merion School District Case Students and parents were not informed of the capability of tracking The student was in his home and not on school property The school no longer owns the account We feel that the school has clearly overstepped its boundaries
and violated its students' privacy rights as well as the
Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution As of now, the case of Blake J. Robbins vs. the Lower Merion School District
is still pending. In the future, to prevent this sort of problem, schools should disclose the capabilities of technologies given to their students.
It is our hope that the Lower Merion School District as well as districts across the country realize and clarify the boundaries between technological advancement and abuse. http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/tech/WebcamGate_Teen___I_Just_Hope_They_re_Not_Watching_Me__Philadelphia.html
