    Student Suspended for Refusing to Wear a School-Issued RFID Tracker

    I hope the student wins.**** like this could be used to used to breed compliance with government and corporate monitoring of what we do.

    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.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The Hernandez family, which is Christian, told InfoWars that the sophomore is declining to wear the badge because it signifies Satan, or the Mark of the Beast warning in Revelations 13: 16-18.
    if this were a tattoo, then maybe that would be a reasonable objection
    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

    From the article : "School officials offered to quietly remove the tracking chip from Andrea’s card if the sophomore would agree to wear the new ID without the imbedded RFID chip so as to give the appearance of participation in the Student Locator Project. Andrea refused this offer. "

    Why would that be a violation of her religion? I think it could be a good tool to have in a school shooting situation to help the police be able to locate students hiding in closets and such.

    I hope the student wins too. This goes too far for my tastes even though the "it signifies Satan" part of the objection is too far out there for me.

    why is it a bad idea for the school to use technology to know where each of its students is located on campus during school hours?

    its a school, they make the rules, currently i don't see the big deal at all.
    Guess that could change if i read more about it, but based on the article im fine with the tags.
    She can find a different school.

    And tracking peoples location is violation of their rights.

    The card is obviously meant for tracking purposes. Without that the card is entirely useless and she has no reason to care about the schools appearances. It is however in her interest to make them look as bad she possibility can and to refuse their offer that was only meant so they could save some face.

    Our schools are becoming prisons. Fences all around, zero tolerance policies, drug testing, ridiculous lunchtime restrictions, strip searches, and now RFID tracking. It is a shame that so many are willing to give up so much out of fear.

    Good Point. This is a major violation to personal privacy. This is making High School's a Police State (They are Gov. Institutions) in themselves. This is going way to far in my opinion; If they are that paranoid about their students, invest in cyber school not RF-ID chips.
