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.
My thought is that schools are indoctrinating kids to accept a tightly controlled society - fascism. No privacy, no free speech, & the right of gov’t to challenge you on ANY behavior - even where you go.
In past times, only a parent had this level of control. Now, gov’t has taken it away as a new gov’t function.
At this rate, 100 years from now, gov’t will dictate when, where, & under what circumstances you may defecate.
