    because children are considered "dependent".

    the school's expectation is not onerous
    wear the chipped ID card so that the school- which is responsible for the students on campus grounds - can know where its students are located during school hours
    Yeah, because high school kids are such adorable morons that they must be tracked at all times -- it's the way of a caring gestapo, it is.

    This is not right, A blatant attack on civil liberties, No matter child or adult. Some of you may see this as "Protection for our Children". I see this as a "Going to Far" Response to domestic terrorism and the American Mindset after 9/11. This is not a solution to a problem, it is Utilitarian method meant for max control, which nobody should have.

    I applaud this person for refusing to wear the RF-ID badge, I would not either.

    For those of you that have graduated from grade school in the past, you remember "Senior Skip Day" and all those shenanigans you pulled while back in school. Do we really want to have our children become "Learning Machines" in school and nothing else? I remember running about the school during study hall, having fun and the time of my life, And I am sure I will remember it until the day I die.

    Student Suspended for Refusing to Wear a School-Issued RFID Tracker | Threat Level | Wired.com

    A Texas high school student is being suspended for refusing to wear a student ID card implanted with a radio-frequency identification chip.
    Northside Independent School District in San Antonio began issuing the RFID-chip-laden student-body cards when the semester began in the fall. The ID badge has a bar code associated with a student’s Social Security number, and the RFID chip monitors pupils’ movements on campus, from when they arrive until when they leave.
    Radio-frequency identification devices are a daily part of the electronic age — found in passports, and library and payment cards. Eventually they’re expected to replace bar-code labels on consumer goods. Now schools across the nation are slowly adopting them as well.
    The suspended student, sophomore Andrea Hernandez, was notified by the Northside Independent School District in San Antonio that she won’t be able to continue attending John Jay High School unless she wears the badge around her neck, which she has been refusing to do. The district said the girl, who objects on privacy and religious grounds, beginning Monday would have to attend another high school in the district that does not yet employ the RFID tags.
    The Rutherford Institute said it would go to court and try to nullify the district’s decision. The institute said that the district’s stated purpose for the program — to enhance their coffers — is “fundamentally disturbing.”
    “There is something fundamentally disturbing about this school district’s insistence on steamrolling students into complying with programs that have nothing whatsoever to do with academic priorities and everything to do with fattening school coffers,” said John Whitehead, the institute’s president.
    I'm ambivalent about the chip because some parents might want their children tracked. I'm not at all ambivalent about the stated purpose ""to do with fattening school coffers." That is absolutely wrong.

    You can't very well correct a comment incorrectly and claim you did so correctly.

    What you actually did was bring up perental locus and applied it incorrectly.

    (IN late - regarding the OP . . . didn't read the thread or anything else on this issue)

    Umm - no . . . I put 'tracking your every move with a chip' to be along the lines of 'privacy invasion' and 'need a warrant' - you know, those concerns.

    No way would I support 'the chip' - absolutely not.

    I support the student. They're people - not cars.

    I would agree if it was outside of school property and school hours but its not, dont you think that makes a difference? just honestly asking?
    My work is set up this way but the situation is quite different because we are a secured facility.
    Technically theres no privacy invasion that doesnt already exist. No need for a warrant either since its on school property. Same reason they can go through your locker.
