Just a word of caution on the hidden camera. Administrators at our school
have informed us that it i is not legal to film students in the class
without parental permission. You will need to have a parent or guardian
sign a permission form from each child or you may be facing problems down
the road. As I understand our situation here in Texas, the administrators
are warning us because the new list of "Parental Rights" includes
references to this issue.
