Do you know where your children are?

“Parents Can’t Monitor Autistic Son with GPS Tracker at School, Nevada Ruling Says,” The Wall Street Journal, April 29, 2019.  School rules that autistic student can’t wear a tracking device capable of recording conversations.  This was after a teacher was arrested for beating him.

One can understand why the school doesn’t want parents to be able to listen in to what goes on at school.  One can understand why a child’s parents might want to.  But do other students have a right, enforceable by the school, not to be recorded?  Couldn’t the school video-record the activity in a classroom, for educational or security reasons?
