Is it illegal to put a spy camera on my child at school

There seems to be some unfair practices at my childs school i.e., favoritism, harsh punishments for my child for trivial things while others would get none, just downright mean when speaking to my child. I have no proof but know this is going on. Is it illegal to put a spy camera on my child during school in the state of Ohio?

I can't find a law stating that a camera cannot be at the school. But I think you would run into a plethora of issues if you tried do this. It would take a long time to research all of the laws, but if the camera were discovered by the staff I am sure that not only your child would be in trouble, but you as well. There could be potential state or federal laws violated, as well as the staff being able to sue you on a personal level for breaching privacy. I understand your frustration, I would be very upset if my student was not being treated properly. But, there are other ways you can deal with this issue. I suggest you contact the district/school board directly. If they cannot or refuse to look into your complaint, then you can move above their heads. Best of luck to you with this issue!

Thank you for your input. I can't go to the district because this is a private school that thinks they are above any rules or laws. Sadly, they seem to get away with quite a bit. This includes the Principal. It's not just me, There are alot of people who experience these same types of scenarios. If they don't like it then they are asked to leave. I didn't want to pull my child out during the school year.... on the other hand, next year will be somewhere else.
