Spying of students in San Antoino, Texas

You have to go read the entire article about this amazing move to force over 4,000 students in San Antoino to wear "locator chips" that would enable the district to track the students every move in real time.  This is the stuff of science fiction a few years ago, and the ranting of crazy preachers according to most.  Well, here it is.

spy chip report 

A court has stepped into a school dispute in San Antonio, Texas, ordering that a district cannot expel a student over her refusal to wear a badge signifying participation in the district’s computer-chip based “Student Locator Project.”

The Rutherford Institute, which is working on the case of student Andrea Hernandez of John Jay High School’s Science and Engineering Academy, said the badges for the program include Radio Frequency Identification chips that send signals enabling school officials to track students’ locations continuously on campus......

RFID has no power to track locations, unless the school invests millions of dollars in placing RFID readers on every wall in 6-inch increments. RFID chips do NOT broadcast their location to anything unless you wave the card in front of a RFID reader, most commonly seen on locked doors or computers. They are much more frequently used to authorize access to buildings or computers. The only tracking power they have is to track what time the student used their card to open a door. But most RFID readers aren't designed to store that information long-term.
The article is sensationalistic nonsense, which is par for the course for World Net Daily.
