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.
I hate to break this to you, but it is much worse than you think.
This isn’t about privacy, or control, or education for that matter. It’s about what makes school systems tick these days - money.
The school gets paid by the number of students in first period. After they collect their money, they couldn’t care less where the kid is the rest of the day. In fact, I doubt they even care if the kid is there at all - just somebody bring his dam badge to class so we can get even more money.
The school system, at every level, is hopelessly broken. Until we turn it into a ‘for profit’ institution run be business professionals, this crap will keep happening.
