Linda Thomas of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer blogs about how far parents—and some schools, seemingly—are willing to go to keep an eye on children. The story behind her post: the revelation that a high school official shared school surveillance videotape with the parents of a girl who’d asked the school to keep an eye on her behavior. The tape allegedly showed the girl kissing another girl, and the parents subsequently moved their daughter to another school. “I understand why parents of a Gig Harbor High School girl asked the school to examine surveillance tapes and help them spy on their daughter. What I don’t get is why the school complied,” Thomas writes.
