RFID is not the same as GPS and tracking

Kids can go wherever they want. Once in school they can be located.
You can think of that as a bad or good thing. I would not mind if they could follow my kid in school, in case of emergency that is really good information to have.

But if you don't like it, take it up with the school. And don't be a wussy about it, if it is that important take your kid from the school.

Once outside of range (max 100 meter) the rfid is just like any other rfid you have in your pocket (atm, credit , health insurance cards etc).
If you don't want people to be able to receive the rfid information use a metal container or line your wallet with aluminum foil.
