Rick, If I had a recording of me talking with 3 terrorists planning to blow up some federal building, would I not be able to use it? Would I be liable to arrest for hidden recording?

As a public high school teacher I have often thought of hiding a video camera doing constant recording of class. I have been assaulted several times and kids often curse me out. Yet, because I am in Illinois I can't legally do this??
