Invasion of privacy?
On school property? Nope.
Off school property? Absolutely.
The school district seems to be taking the term In Loco Parentis
to a whole new level.
While I agree that truancy is an issue and education is extremely important, the method they are choosing is self defeating in one sense and
educational in the other.
Its self defeating in that its an extreme invasion (imo) and will do nothing but anger the students and parents to the point of backlash. Its
educational in the sense that students are becoming intimately familiar with how the government operates and what their rights are.
The fact the students are upset and taking a stand actually gives me some reassurance that our future is not as doomed as I thought.
ETA - In for a penny in for a pound... The Teachers, administrators and superintendents, in addition to any individual who iseven remotely attached to
the school should also be reauired to abide by the tracking.
