It is legitimate to require a student to have a student ID when in school. The foil method obeys the letter of the law without letting the things work as intended.
No - it is not ... giving in to ELECTRONIC TRACKING is giving in to any an all public survelience... Privacy intrusion is Liberty intrusion
You're missing the point. The school already offered to give her a non-functioning dummy to wear to show "support" for the system and they refused. Not unlike the patriot act and everything else that has been handed to government, all they need to do is establish precedence...
Remember how the patriot act was ONLY to be used for tracking terrorists? .. and how any other data inadvertently captured would be ignored? Well now they are using it in the course of everyday law enforcement, etc.
You absolutely can NOT give them even an opening for the possibility of abuse, because they will do it.
