And whats stopping one kid bringing id's of his 10 friends? Accurate attendance? One big LOL

Texas has very strict laws on this. So strict it's ridiculous. A 17 year old girl was convicted of truancy down there this year I believe. She admitted to it, but the reason she wasn't attending all of her classes is because she was working to feed her younger sister. Her parents walked out on them both like a year ago when the article was written. It was such a sham because she was still passing all classes (with B's or better as I recall) and working nearly fulltime to pay for her own high school, and her sisters needs as well. The state got a lot of flak for it because she really didn't have a lot of options.

EDIT: found an article

^^^^ This

Above all advantages the school thinks it is getting here, this sort of action is being done at the highest levels of government for one reason: liability. Parents freak out when teachers/ principles aren't doing the jobs that parents think they should be doing.

I look at the government run educational and see one problem. That being how ridiculous liability issues have become, you shouldn't be able to sue the school. Every situation that parents present where they blame the school for crap just drives me up the wall. 50 years ago nobody knew what a lawsuit was and the world kept turning just fine.

Children, their actions, their behaviour and every aspect of their life is the responsibility of the PARENT.

It is the schools responsibility to take attendance, teach and provide supervised recess. That responsibility ends there. They need to be doing this to the best of their abilities, of course! But it ends there.

If a kids skips school/class, it is the schools duty to notify the parent so that the parent can take appropriate action. If the parents fail to discipline and teach their kids that they have to go to school, then the PARENT has failed the kid, not the school.

If a kid is failing in school, it is the schools duty to notify the parent so that the parent and teacher can discuss ways of catching the student up and bringing them up to par. it is then the responsibility of the PARENT to continue to teach their kid at home or enroll their child in an after school educational program.

A teacher has the responsibility to teach 30-35 kids (imo, a number way to high =P I will be happier seeing my kids in a group setting of 20 tbh) It is irresponsible to slow down the classes learning for 1 or 2 kids who are goofing off or falling behind. There are always oppurtunites to assist slower kids during quiet times, but if a kid is trailing too far behind, it is up to the PARENT to take up the slack in the education.

Parents who aren't actively involved in their kids education have no right to blame anyone for the way their kids turn out.

/end rant

sorry...

back on topic: We are at this point thanks to ourselves (see above), as for now all we can do is move forward and tackle the situation that presents itself. At this point it would make sense to give your kids a wallet/pouch lined with tinfoil (or whatever fancy material the kids these days are using to block radio waves), instruct them to carry said card in the pouch in their bag when they are not on school grounds. While on school grounds they have to follow policy and carry it around their neck.

Or scan their card, the next time you are at a department store, over the magnets they use to disable their own rfid security devices, and refuse to pay for new ones. That's their card, their beef, let them deal with it.

This would probably be a good idea for the rest of us anyways, credit card companies are starting to put the same chips in their cards. It would be beneficial for you do keep your credit cards safer then any gov't issued ID if you ask me rolleyes.gif

A line needs to be drawn, just because these are kids doesn't mean their privacy and life is to be known by the school. School is taking a very concering step in the wrong direction.

Oh for crying out loud. This is by far the stupidest "NWO" theory I have ever heard. You know what else contains RFID chips, you car tires, your passport, most drivers licenses, most library cards, library books, most consumer goods in stores.

In the next ten years, you will not be able to buy anything with out a RFID. Sorry it is true. At my job, they have RFID tags. Which is good, because it keeps people that do not belong out of the workplace. Same goes for schools, it will keep non attending students out of schools.

In most schools, you have to produce a student id for anything anyway. So what is the big problem? It is not like the RFID is sending second by second details of everything you do. It just tracks when you enter the school, when you leave, and your activities at the school.


I wonder what the news story would be if they RFID system flagged a kidnapped child. Child goes to recess, does not come back in from recess, the computer notifies the school. The school then makes the phone calls and tries to track down the child. When the child does not turn up, the school calls the police and they begin searching for the child.

A possible 6 hour head start of a kidnapper has been cut down to 30 minutes. Think about it. I believe that the RFID should be voluntary OP in by the parent. But heck, I am that way.

Tracking anyone like this what so ever unless they are a criminal should be illegal. If you can't get kids to come to school maybe it is because we are running our education system based off an industrial revolution, when in reality we need to be running a system based on imagination and creativity. THIS IS WRONG. I am completely apposed to "breaking them in" to being tracked. Kids are impressionable and this CAN NOT be the norm.
