If someone shows my picture in a presentation to a public school without citing it, is it illegal?

A person that I know used one of my pictures in a presentation of theirs, didn't even consider citing it, and showed it in a public school presentation. Does this violate the Copyright Act of 1976? And also, if I would've added a watermark to my picture, is it still considered plagiarism if this person were to show it without citing it?

You had a copyright on your photo? Then, yes, you may sue your friend for copyright infringement.

Technically yes, it violates copyright laws. But since its a public school presentation, it could be argued that it was used for an educational purpose which can bypass those laws in some regards.
