If it makes you feel better, sure why not. Just like school administration would never dial into an issued laptop to spy on a student in their own home. Oh wait...

Not sure why anybody would be surprised. Public schools are built around the same psychology as penatenteries. This is just government acclimating people to constant surveilence. Start people on an evil idea when they are young and they are less of a prolem when they grow up.

I mean honestly if this is an american public school run by the government im even less surprised. Americans are not as free as they are led to believe. infact your governemt controlls your whole life but gives you nothing in return

****y roads
no healthcare
no finacial help
no dental
i mean what do you get from your government an army that kills thousands of women and children a country at the brink of civil war a prison nation a pill nation i mean its really a joke that most americans really believe they are free.
Freedom of speech hahahahah not in america

And you might say ow no its private companies doing this but you would be very wrong

Lol. There's more to America than "greedy capitalists". It is a far better country than foreigners like to think. There's a reason illegal immigrants are willing to sell everything they own and risk death to get here, it's a great place to live, and gives everybody the chance at "The American Dream".

The American Dream is a facade. The only reason why people chose to move to America is because it's the easiest country to enter and work illegally. The quality of life in America has gone down significantly. Anyone who thinks America is still a "great place to live" needs to open their eyes up and take a look around. Sorry, but Aussie hit the nail right on the head.

if i had to deal with it i would ether tell them to shove it or build a case so that it blocks the RFID to be transmitted. just a wire mesh case would do. imo its a ok idea but too easily to be taken advantage of.

To be fair when compared to places like north korea or almost any african abomination of a country, america comes off as a shining beacon of hope. It's only when held up against other modern and civilized countries that the cracks start to show.

When you compare Texas's plans to a country where tardiness is cured with a 7.62x39 round, the comparison is rather pointless...

Should we all be tagged? I mean, if a terrorist bombs a building, and many are killed, the argument could be made that it is the governments job to protect its citizens.

I'm just pointing out how how laughable it is when people resort to hyperbole to expound upon how terrible the USA is.
