Big Brother(or sister Janet Nappytano in this case) is alive and well! Might as well condition these younguns into learning that the guvment knows best and that to fight back is futile!
Government needs to get out of the business of taking care of our children!!! Unfortunately, out of the two globalists puppets we have had chosen for our Master for the next four years, things will only get worse.....

In Texas of all places...I didn't see that coming, not there anyway. Though after the Gardasil vaccinations it really shouldn't surprise me.
So whats next, CPS the kids, or arrest the parents for being parents and refusing?
Or will the school cut some deal with the kids away from the parents to get it to work? Like a gift certificate to GameStop, free iphone or something that appeals to the trendiness of children.
RFID tags could help the school district offset cuts in state funding because attendance plays a huge role in determining revenue. With a more exact attendance count via RFID tags, Northside could receive a total of $1.7 million next year from higher attendance and Medicaid reimbursements for busing special education students. If the trial proves successful, RFID tags could go districtwide and bring in a much larger payoff.
The district will pay $525,065 to deploy the trial next year, then another $136,005 annually to run it. Each RFID tag is $15, which students will have to pay if they lose it.
While the payoff could be great for the district, privacy is the main concern of parents. The district says students will only be tracked while they are physically in the school, and only authorized administrative officials will have access to RFID information. However, there are concerns regarding kidnapping if someone were to hack into the system.

I am however impressed that the Government has decided to take this directly to Texas... I guess this will have more immediate impact and foundation for this desired "chipping" on the Nation than lets say if it were to of been started in a more liberally compliant state.

Now back to your regularly scheduled irrational fears...

Idiocy in teaching - 101.
Rule number 1 - You can't teach kids that aren't present in class.
Truancy means nothing to kids today. Why would it?
Social conditioning has told kids that their parents can not tell them what to do for about half of a century now.
Guess what? It worked.
The present situation stems from the mentality that parents are not necessary and family doesn't matter any more.
Society has been reprogrammed so well that individual responsibility to anyone does not exist any more.
Parents can't control their kids. Society can't control them either.
Now the school district has to corral thousands of kids with no sense of responsibility who will get diplomas no matter what.
Yay affirmative action and NCLB. Great job at promoting failure at an early age as the norm.
It all worked so well but there's a catch. Schools aren't getting paid because the kids don't get held accountable and don't show up. So how can the schools continue to turn our kids into lazy manipulative parasites if they don't get funded?
Chip em like cattle.
A police state is the ultimate result of a progressive agenda.[/quo
Where are the parents in this fiasco? They should be storming the school the day after this policy comes out, letting them know that unless it's withdrawn the kids will all be kept home.
