Smile, you're on camera.
A Philadelphia school district is hit with a class-action lawsuit– because it didn't tell students that.
Well, sort of.
School computers given to students in the Lower Merion District have webcams that can be remotely activated – even secretly recording students in their homes.
Some students and parents feel it is a gross invasion of privacy
The school district is defending the program, saying it was set up to help track down missing or stolen computers.
So what do you think?
Did the school district cross the line?
It admits parents should have been notified, but should this technology even be in place on computers given to students?

We’ll use some of them in the CNN Newsroom, 11am ET – 1pm ET.
[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2010/images/02/22/t1flip_tea_party_file_gi.jpg caption=""] All next week CNN will focus on “Broken Government.”
Our question: is a broken system at the heart of all the political discontent out there?
Liberals who won’t see health care reform think government is broken. So do conservatives frustrated with runaway spending. And independents think it too when they look at a system that fails to produce solutions to our problems.
What we need from you – examples of ways you think government is broken.
Post them below – we’re going to use them to help generate ideas for our coverage next week.
