AT&T Offers GPS and RFID Child Tracking


www.blacklistednews.com

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.

Is this a good use of new technology or is it an invasion of privacy of students. Do schools have the right to track every move of their students? It seems like we cannot make a single move without someone wanting to know what, where, and why we are doing it. Can't our own children be trusted anymore? What happened to bringing up your kids the right way by taking responsibility for them and their actions. Schools are not supposed to be babysitters.
