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Anson Jones Middle School within the Northside Independent School District were told their old student ID badges were no longer valid.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.

This has me extremely pizzed.
” WOAI television reported district spokesman Pasqual Gonzalez said the two schools have a high rate of truancy, and the district could gain $2 million in state funding by improving attendance.
According to the San Antonio newspaper, the program is expected to cost the district $526,065 to implement with annual cost of $136,005 per year to continue running the program.”
Students refusing the chips were reportedly threatened with suspension, fines, or being involuntary transferred.
How does that make sense, exactly?! How?! The program will improve attendance and bring money to the school but they’re going to suspend or transfer students who won’t participate?! FINE them? FINE a student? Or do they mean the parent.
Well, if they’re tracking students 24/7 because a student will place it in a wallet or whatever. Then this must mean the school accepts responsibility for truant students and they can no longer fine parents or threaten to jail parents over truant students. The school absolutely has more ability to keep up with the child. So they own that responsibility.
Also, can parents now sue the pants off the school if the kid is somehow lost, abducted, hurt while skipping because the school didn’t monitor the students properly. The school is by default accepting FULL responsibility for these children. FULL and more.
Schools want to put cameras on garbage cans to see what food students are throwing away. Yeah right, have recycle cans—food this can, paper whatever other then have the janitor or whatever person weigh that garbage. No, the schools want to go after individual students, that is why cameras.
Some schools are going for the thumb or hand scan to buy lunch. They are training these kids to accept full monitoring of their lives, like pets, wards of the state. SLAVES, PROPERTY. Stupid reality TV doesn’t help this any.
Look at the amount of money being spent on this cra9tastic program.
So is the state completely power hungry or is there also some businesses getting fat and greasing the palms of these POS school ‘officials’?! Stealing and wasting tax payer dollars and children’s education dollars. One, the other or both?
Send out two guys in a Paddy Wagon to round them up. Maybe have two Paddy Wagons.
Vehicle cost, Maintenance, Gas and four Salaries wouldn't cost more than a quarter million a year.
Part of the problem is the way schools get the money for students attendance and other programs. The money needs to be dealt with differently somehow.
We were a military family, moved a bunch. I ran into a problem with one state.
I went to the school in person, filled out paperwork and withdrew my son because we were moving. Made sure everything was clear—no library fines, no text books missing yada. Good to go.
We get moved, I go register son with his new school—a little hassle over something with his previous school (I don’t recall what now—shot records?)Everything worked out and he started attending his new school.
THEN, about 4 months later I get a letter from his old school threatening me with fines, jail—you name it, for his not attending class for all that time.
I figure fine, little flub on their part I’ll sort it out. Days and days of trying to contact them and get it cleared up, finally I talked to someone and I gave them the information of his new school and they assured me they would clear it up.
Couple of months pass and yet ANOTHER letter comes threatening me with fines, jail and all that. I had his new school fax the old school and they tried to clear it up. Taken care of, right? Nope.
This was when my son was in 9th grade and these letters continued all the way until he graduated. I finally had my *ah-ha!* moment and we just filed them and laughed.
They didn’t want to release my son from their records because as a military dependent attending the school in town—they collected money for that. They did not want to lose that money.
It was always about control. They didn't have it. They wanted it. Despots are made out of those who are determined and desperate to become king.
The way the Gov sees it is, the Technology is there so it must be used.
And laws must be made because they can be made without limits, and
if 10,000 new laws are created and only 100 are repealed, Government wins.
American Citizens must stop allowing this insanity and madness..
Schools are run by pervert leftists everywhere, not just “liberal” states
Fine. You win. expel me. Good riddance.
Are they gonna expel the entire school?
You give the left a inch, they will take a mile. Fight it, resist or take your kids out of the school. This is the leftist school system in this country at work here. The same leftist school system that has taught the kids in school today that socialism is acceptable and appealing, that “free everything at the expense of others” is acceptable.
You either fight it or you will lose...do not be complaisant and accepting of socialist “demands.” The principal has to go, or you take your kids out of that school.
YET another reason we must work tirelessly for a Romney in November.
See post #29.
School ID chipping is one step closer to micro-chipping the rest of us. STOP, resist, fight it, take your kids out of the school, join forces with other parents, students do the same and stop these damn socialists in our school system.
You give the socialists an inch, they will take a mile, and your FREEDOM.
There’s always a way around it.
Take the * thing home and zap it in the microwave. Then wear it as they tell you. They won’t be tracking anything once it’s been zapped in the microwave.
Clone the founders, teach them modern urban warfare. Problem solved.
I’d like to add, that there aren’t men or women with enough conviction and selflessness anymore in positions of power to fight evil.
We truly are being punished. The whole world is.
What is with hippies growing up to be fascists, whod of thunk the generation of free love
Empty heads can be filled with sh## no matter what sh## that might be
They will then require the RFID to get into (and out of) the school by installing electronically activated doors. Better is to put it in a small metal box once off the school grounds. I know you can buy metal wallets to protect RFID credit cards.
Silly goose, all little drones are assimilated to their phones; politley ask carriers to patch their gps data to school skynet.
Everyone wins , kids continue to txt and watch their fav events, school is with them 24-7
Good grief, next thing you know, there will be tattos on the forearms. Now how would that look?
