    Sometimes easy solutions are so in front of peoples' faces, they miss it completely.

    I wasn't pointing out a jambog. I was merely bringing previous discussion to the table and highlighting the fact that those who were protesting the most have no idea what RFID is.

    As a person working in the security sector and with compliance checks, all one has todo is to find out if that device is secured or not. And bam their argument of not wearing it, is sustained. With information like that of SSN numbers, I bet the device is not secured.

    If I was the kid, I would find a half-*** competent lawyer and sue the SD for infringe of their rights of privacy, and host of other isues ..... just to be an ******* and to make them spend $$$$s justifiying their demands for a RFID.

    Now if this a prison, I would see the need or argument for a RFID tracker. But this is school of all places.

    The issue is not so much that it is a tracking device, as much as it is a mandate to wear said device.

    Deactivating the device is just "keeping your head down."

    It's also a "mandate" that the kids have to conform to a certain dress code and show up to school on time. A school rule that applies only in school which says you have to carry an ID doesn't seem all that unreasonable.

    The RFID chip is only for on-campus use. I don't see an issue. It's not like they're going to track the kids' activities outside of school.

    Then the question becomes, where should the line be drawn?

    That's a hell of a knee jerk reaction. Did you actually read the article?

    Yes, yes it does.

    Personally, as long as my kids can take the ID off once they leave the school building, my personal line isn't drawn anywhere near here.

    Let me tell you a realistic scenario.. Active shooter in a school , It would be great to know where the kids AND staff are to do rescues.

    How about an autistic kid that goes missing? Many good uses for the tags..
    leave them in the locker put it on when you get to school.

    If you can mandate wearing or having a school ID ...and you can.. the addition of the tracking tag woudl most likely be upheld.

    HOWEVER you should be able to Opt out and use School district money to send your kid to a private school, figure out how much each students education costs each year and make that available to parents that wish to opt out..I bet Public schools start getting real competitive with private and religious schools.
