Radio frequency identification — the same technology used to monitor cattle — is tracking students in the Spring and Santa Fe school districts.
Identification badges for some students in both school districts now include tracking devices that allow campus administrators to keep tabs on students' whereabouts on campus. School leaders say the devices improve security and increase attendance rates.

Isn't that sweet. Track the children like cattle. They say it improves attendance records so they can get their full funding. Again the bottom line prevails.
I don't think I would like my children being tagged. I can see it now. ~ School children cannot be trusted to keep up with rfid cards, costing the state a fortune. Parents, we need to insert this chip under the skin. After all we need "all" of our funding to assure you that your child get's the education it deserves. Pun intended with "it".

This is ridiculous, how can anyone approve such things. This is not proximity chips, this is a tracking device used to know where all the kids are at all time.
This is completely against there freedom.
