Well we're using RFID tags in school now to track attendence and other things.

"Stillman has gone whole-hog for radio-frequency technology, which his year-old Enterprise Charter School started using last month to record the time of day students arrive in the morning. In the next months, he plans to use RFID to track library loans, disciplinary records, cafeteria purchases and visits to the nurse's office. Eventually he'd like to expand the system to track students' punctuality (or lack thereof) for every class and to verify the time they get on and off school buses. "

Now there are a number of problems with this:

This is an instance of using technology to enforce good behavior. Since your forced, without learning why it matters, when your no long tracked you'll go hog wild. Well, in theory. More importantly, you never learn why you're tracked. These are young children here and it's important to teach them, no legislate them.

What's even worse, if you think about, is that no one is speaking up. This stuff goes down all the time, over the nation, and parents just don't care. The next generation will be the NWO generation if this keeps up. I don't have a problem with that. I have a problem with kids being fed decisions with no basis of explaination. You want America to be great? Support accountability. You want America to be free? Maintain freedoms, don't restrict them.
