Calm down people. You’ve voted to give up your liberty, it’s a simple transition really. It won’t take long, and most of the public is too stupid to miss it.
Hey all you Freepers who keep crowing about how Texas is the Land of Milk and Honey and how we few remaining “sane” Californians need to get in our cars with all of our worldly possessions in the trailer behind and move to Texas so we can be “free.” Texas is just a few steps behind other states on the road to Marxism. If this had happened even ten years ago, the Texans I knew would have had the school board and the administration strung up in the public square. This is absolutely outrageous! What’s next, eliminating the cards and just putting the microchips under this skin like the family pet? This whole RFID thing should be brought to a screeching halt, at least insofar as human beings are concerned.
After the little 12 year old was taken in Baltimore on Wednesday, it might not be a bad idea. Can you imagine being a parent against this and then your child disappears? I think they would still say “yes my child has vanished but I still have freedom.”
When I was in school if they tried something like this it would never have happened. We would have burned the ID badges in the student common area.
Think about it, what are they going to if you don’t wear the badge, expell you?! Like that is a big punishment, more time at the beach.
The kids today are such sheeple.
The fight against “soft” tracking measures will be a big one over the next 20 years. It would be smart if we got ahead of it now.
RFID is lazy man’s attendance. Don’t have to take attendance and it is difficult to fake the attendance. Not sure it provides any other benefit. Besides, what is really telling the school is the location of the ID. Child could just as easily give the ID to a friend and the school would be none the wiser.
Often friends and I in HS went wandering in places we shouldn’t have been. The principal would sometimes catch us. He would reprimand us as a group and then point to me and say ‘you. you go to school here?’
Now his rfid reader could eliminate that question.
One more reason our last two will never again see the insides of a public school. They have been in a Christian based private for the last years and if that was to not work out for whatever reason homeschooling would be the end result, even if I had to take the private school funds and hire a part-time tutor to help us.
I had three kids go through a small country school (2A) here in Texas up until 2008 (K-12) and after we moved away from the area, for career reasons, I have kept in touch with some folks and read the local paper and I wouldn’t even let my last two attend that school that we were a part of for so long. It has turned into a reflection of the people who have moved their kids there after being “asked” to leave the adjoining larger school districts and the newer teachers hired to replace the older retiring ones. It is a shame.
Same thing happening at the state and national level in our culture, why do people leave a place they were unhappy with only to try and make the new place like where they just left? STAY THERE!
Obviously the Northside ISD has way too much money and too many employees. Time to prune the tree.
