2:05 PM: whose space?
the "student & teacher safety act" is just obedience training for future citizens: getting kids used to random, warrantless searches will make them more compliant and less resistant to future abuses. but it's not how to educate citizens about living in a free country.
although given the developing legislation against sites like myspace or any web2.0 site which contains a profile, plus parental consent laws, it looks to me we're returning to an era where "children" are supposed to be invisible and servile.
