Radio Frequency Id Chip Case Ruling Favors Texas School District
Posted 13 January 2013 - 08:31 AM
These students have to realize what a privilege they have in receiving an education on property that is not their own and where rules and regulations are those of the owners of that property. Further, as a Priest, I cannot see what religious violation there is in such a requirement. In this I am assuming these badges are not intended to be worn off campus.

There is nothing wrong with having to require students and staff to wear RFID badges, say on a belt clip or around the neck on a lanyard. Most companies require employees to wear badges, so why not students and staff in school?

1 As taxpayers children yes the property is theirs .
2 This will be abused by the schools to receive more money .
3 This will be one more thing that the children will have to rebel against.

1)Teacher uses system to find when a kid is most vulnerable and then rapes them! 2) Shooting takes place and the shooter gets a hold of system!

1) As taxpayers, the White House is ours. Entry and monitoring of where you go and what you do is mandatory, and wise.
2) Schools claiming someone is present when they are not present to get more money is where the possible abuse lies. This method keeps both schools and students honest about who is there and who is not.
3) Nobody "has" to rebel against anything. It is up to the parents to parent them. Teach them to be logical and reasonable and not to be led around by their emotions and knee-jerk reactions to supposed "violations of rights" when no such violations exist.

Until someone with a brain goes and buys a reader off the internet and uses the tags to track and kidnap one of these children either on campus or off. Then their defense will be that it isn't their fault. This technology can be miss used to easily and most people do not understand how easily RFID technology can be read. Yes all the card has on it is a serial number, however that number is in a database at the school that can be and will be easily hacked putting ALL these kids at risk. I have no doubt the judge in the case is well meaning, I also have no doubt the judge as very little knowledge about the technology he is ruling on. As far as the question "if you aren't doing something wrong" that holds no water.

When government acts like they care about you, LOOK OUT.

I personally don't want to see my tax dollars go into these programs because I know how costly they can become. The card printing machines are expensive, and a single replacement card is $14, at least ours are. If all the students decided they wanted to protest and "lose" their cards, it would cost the tax payers a small fortune to replace them all. This whole system wreaks of big brother as well. 1984 is here, and we're all equal, but, as you know, some are more equal than others.

With a little creativity, the passive system could match the active system in intrusiveness. Why not put readers on the lockers? Now we can monitor how often the kids go into their lockers, you know, for safety and security purposes. Put those one way gates on the bathrooms, so students can only enter one at a time, and we know when and how often they go to the bathroom (blah, blah, blah security and safety). We can have the kids use their cards to scan which lunch option they choose. If we know who's eating right, we can identify "miscreants" and "anarchists" because they'll be eating junk food or brining lunch from home. We can put readers in the locker rooms to activate the showers too. This way, we know who is hygienic and how many children are in there at once (insert propaganda for safety and security here).
The bottom line is, the technology can only go as far as we allow it. If you feel your child's rights are being violated, you need to get involved and stand up for them. Oh wait, that would require real parenting. Never mind.
