A Texan student who refused to wear a badge with a radio tag that tracked her movements has lost a federal court appeal against her school's ID policy.
The radio chips track attendance, which in turn helps secure school funding.
But Andrea Hernandez, 15, stopped wearing the badge on religious grounds, saying it was the "mark of the beast".
After John Jay High School suspended her, she went to court and won a temporary injunction to continue her studies at the school, without the tag.
