Brushing aside privacy concerns by parents and civil rights activists, a Texas school district has gone live with a controversial program requiring all students to wear a locator radio chip that will enable officials to track their every move or face expulsion.
At the beginning of the school year students at John Jay High School and Anson Jones Middle School within the Northside Independent School District were told their old student ID badges were no longer valid. During registration they were required to obtain new badges containing a radio frequency identification tracker chip.

recall election anyone?
I’d take the expulsion and raise it to home schooling.
It’s wrong and smacks of big brother, so leave it in your locker at night. Other than that, you’re at school anyway - it’s already like being in prison.
Sounds just like the feds, to use a government school to test out a program they ultimately want to force on every citizen. First it was cars, then cell phones, now students. Next? National ID cards (w/chip) for everyone, and no transactions of any kind or entry into any building without your card. ...Under penalty of law.
In Fringe’s alternate universe they call these cards “show me cards”, and they must be presented to anyone in authority who asks to see them.
What is with hippies growing up to be fascists, who’d of “thunk” the generation of “free love” would want to videotape and track one’s every move, sad.
Expulsion with prejudice would be my choice. Meaning my prejudice for the administration and a campaign to get rid of them.
I believe this is near San Antonio. This has come up before.
Who will be monitoring these chips?
I think it's because all their opinions are informed not by what they themselves want to do, but by the way they think things SHOULD BE. It's an omniscient frame of mind, probably the result of television.
If a school has no attendees, can they still call it a school?
My children will not be “chipped”...
“..so leave it in your locker at night..”
Agreed on your thoughts that it is like prison anyways. However, I imagine they need to take it home so they can show it at the door when they come back in the morning. I imagine those metal wallets you see on late night TV might stop the chip though?
How in gods name is this happening in TEXAS?
I mean some NE state sure..
It’s TEXAS for Pete’s sake!
Where is the pitch forks?
Where is the torches?
I’m more concerned about who will be monitoring the monitors.
Reminds me of that old hippie song by Steppenwolf, “Monster”:
The cities have turned into jungles
And corruption is stranglin’ the land
The police force is watching the people
And the people just can’t understand....
‘Cause there’s a monster on the loose.
It’s got our heads into the noose
And it just sits there watching....
1. Place badge in microwave. 30 seconds on “high”
2. Place badge inside silvered electronics bag. Badge is visible, but faraday cage effect prevents RFID signal from getting out. . .
You can block the signal of these chips by wrapping the card in aluminum foil.
Walk out the door of the school. Wrap your ID in foil and your anonymous again.
