AT&T envisions the system being used to track in-school assets like computers, projectors, laptop computers, and lab equipment. But the company is also pitching the technology as a means to track students and people directly, enforcing attendance and tracking visitors on school grounds (including alerting administrators to people in unauthorized areas)....Curiously, nowhere in AT&T's description of the technology does the company mention the privacy rights of students, or any ability for students or parents to opt out of such a system. We imagine the company is leaving such policy decisions up to individual schools and districts.
