RFID Cards Are A Comin' (to Students)Submitted by MrMahn on Sat, 08/11/2012 - 01:40
I am a student that will be going to a high school in the Northside District in Texas. I just got a letter in the mail notifying me that the school will be starting the "Student Locator Project." Basically, every student is given a RFID Card that they will have to wear the whole school day. With these cards, the students can be tracked while they are on the campus. They also will not be able to get a school-provided meal or check out a book from the library without showing their card.
Yeah.... this is bad. It seems to me that they're doing this to get the young kids all cozy and OK with the inevitable push for a National ID chip. Oh, and of course, they're doing all of this in the name of "safety." Just thought you guys might want to hear about this.
