This. I don't remember the exact details, but the general statement is that kids in school don't have the same 4th A rights as some adult in their own home. A sorta similar example is how prisoners don't have the same 4th A protections. Students and prisoners are the "exceptions" to the basic 4th A concepts.

Judges "opinions" can shrink or expand your constitutional right. Even a basic one that everyone takes for granted (privacy) was created when some judge just pulled it out of his ass. But, in general, it's a good idea so no subsequent judge is even gonna dream of reversing it.
