Their textbooks are outdated, and this is how they spend their budget... I wish I could say I was surprised. Isn't this a violation of a students right to privacy?

Pfft, I'd just find a reasonably-sized bird (maybe a crow or something) and tie the chip in some unobtrusive location

Wow, I glanced at the comments, even the normally crazy conservative types disagree with this.

You just know some kid is gonna get pissed about it and go on his own little rampage as a political statement.

Oh. Well the way you worded that just kind of sounded as if you were making light of school shootings, that's all.

I'm just used to school shootings, it really is starting to turn into a "another day, another bunch of kids killed" type of deal.

At least that's what it's like here when looking at you guys.

Edit: Misread statement.

I think this is mostly because of the fundie "Mark of the Beast" hysteria, though. If Revelation 13:16-17 didn't exist, they'd probably be cheering it on.

y'know... they're being forced to wear them... nobody's saying they have to be WORKING... crush and incinerate it into uselessness.
There is light and darkness in the world, to be sure.  However, there's no harm to be had in walking in the shade or shadows.

Having actually read the article, I cannot fathom what is more stupid. That they do this, or that they have some weird education funding scheme that encourages this.

I can think of multiple reasons to have children wear locator chips, primarily for safety. However, doing this just to check if they are in the classroom at the start of the day is stupid, especially with the scope limited to just the school and seemingly just the classroom.

On a personal note though, I actually do not have a problem with school children being required to wear locators. It can be instituted as part of a student ID card and part of the students uniform. It can have a verity of benefits. I personally see school as a public enough environment that personal privacy is really not a relevant issue. In a world where students can be abducted or have accidents on their way to school and such, being able to locate them quickly and directly can be of great help. Like I said this is my personal opinion on the matter.

Seeing as the high school cops in Texas have full power to arrest who wants to bet they are using it to arrest truant students.

Kids pretty much have no rights except the ones adults decide to give them. Another reason why I'm a youth rights activist. Kids are human beings, damn it.
