Some nice food for thought.

Why don't they just work on making sure kids go to class?

You know, the old fashioned way where it actually took skilled teachers to keep kids in class

Ater a couple of years:

Hey i got an idea, lets implant these chips so that they cannot remove it, or better yet, even the adults should be implanted, or more better yet, every newbord child shoul be!

One small step leads to another, and another, and another, when are you going to tell the government to stop pushing the line?

Actually the old fashioned way is to have the parents instill a respect for education in their kids. Having society make teachers responsible for everything a child needs to learn in life is ludicrous. Parents are responsible for everything their child needs to learn. Schools (and teachers) are just one of those tools parent need, but they are still responsible for their own child's education.

You'll never read anything like that on the Huffington post...because that goes right to the core of Conservatism: Personal Responsibility.

Government, teachers, School Districts...well where are the parents in all this? It's crazy.

Oh god (/edit gosh. Can't use a diety's name) we have to take personal responsibility? NOOOOOO! What's next, I'm going to have to get off this unemployment I've been on the past 3 years and get a job that pays less? tongue.gif

the thing is though, how do you force something like personal responsibility? in lieu of a lack of personal responsibility sometimes the government has to take some type of action to solve issues that could be better solved through personal responsibility.

this was not the right answer though

I do question the consequences though. Is it a slippery slope? I'm not talking about eroding rights since children don't have a right to privacy, but changing social values. Children who have been tracked their whole life, do they become accustomed to being tracked and end up less protective of their privacy as adults? Or do they, as with other child/adult changes, accept that the limits that were imposed on them as children are no longer acceptable once they reach adulthood.
That said, we can't refuse to change and adapt to future technologies due to fear of unknowable future consequences.
personally i'm just going to lock my kids in a cage. safe and away from harm. perrrrrrrfect.
