The copy on your son's computer is fine, he is a student after all.  It is a
Home/Student Edition.  When I say not for School + mean a school could not
use it as a base install throughout their class rooms as it would be being
licensed to a business (the school) not an individual user.

As for connecting his laptop to WiFi I was being slightly tongue in cheek as
most schools won't let kids on the network with their own machine due to
security restrictions.
