    fear enough and i agree in ways but the alternative is simply your not allowed on their property.

    Now my work is a different story, we are a secured facility and there are even classified areas of the building so the necessity for tracking is much more obvious and logical.

    Yeah, it makes more sense for that kind of workplace. And yeah, I know the alternative is not being allowed on their property, but as in the OP's story, it's a government school, so there's more room for contesting the privacy invasion.

    Because if you're having a quiet fap in the art cupboard, the school doesn't need to know. It's a violation of privacy.

    30 seconds in the microwave should solve the problem.

    Just dont see the concern really, But I do think its odd if there was no reason to implement it, like low attendance, skipping class, lost students, students hiding out in gyms and study halls etc.
    Seems over kill if there was not cause and effect if you know what I mean.

    These are high school students. They are minors. The school is responsible for them from the time they leave home until they arrive back home. If one of them gets in trouble, leaves campus, skips classes, whatever, it is the school's responsibility. Tracking where they are seems to me perfectly reasonable for the school to do. This is not the same thing as tracking the whereabouts of adults.

    Why is it not the same as tracking the whereabouts of adults? I fail to see how being a child means you have no privacy.

    100 years ago, nobody knew what photo ID was. Todays holographic drivers license was sheer science fiction. 100 years from now, your chip implant will be completely normal, not to mention efficient and time-saving.
