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.....

uhmm..this is local texas school government. nothing to do with a federal election for can't connect any dots here.

When I was in school the kids feared the possibility of a closed campus. We had a smoking section. The only cameras were the ones we used in Photography class. My heart hurts for the kids today. I thank God my child is finished with school.

This is the degree of deception and trickery that is out there.

It will be used to track prisoners and the elderly next
and after that to Walmart workers (or some other mega-industry employees)
and afterwards to the general populace.

Like I said before. No surprise. This is the REAL REPUBLICAN AGENDA. A police state.

Okay, I live in this school district and my son attends one of those schools. While I am not sure I completely support this program here are some FACTS:
1. The schools are HUGE - with 9,000+ students. Many of the schools in this district are larger than shopping malls.
2. This high school entails the Science and Engineering Academy, an Advanced Academics Program, and a separate Freshman Center. Many of these students attend dual-credit classes and/or AP classes. (My own son goes to off - campus college classes before returning to school for AP classes).
3. Because of students attending AP testing, TAKS (State mandated testing), various school programs, etc. students are often counted absent when they are, in fact, on campus. (I have fought with the attendance office several times to clear up "absences" when my son was taking a test on campus.) This program is intended to be able to identify (and then visually verify) the presence of students mistakenly counted absent.
4. That being said, these are ACTIVE ID cards - they contain batteries to power the chips. While the district says they are used only to track the students on campus, they do NOT deactivate when the student leaves the school. It is this property which is causing most of the protests. While I don't know if they possess the technology, the potential exists for the district police (each school district here has it's own police force) to be able to drive around and identify students off campus. (or at least where their ID is) By being active cards, they can be detected at a greater range.
5. These cards are very large. (3-4" wide, 5-6" long, and close to 1/4" thick). No one is going to carry it around if they don't have to (i.e. off campus)
6. School funding in Texas is very low and cut every year. The districts will do everything possible to get more money.
7. This also speeds up the lunch line by automatically charging the student's "lunch fund" as they go through the line.
8. This is a small issue as far as "Big Brother" in an area where schools have metal detectors, on campus police officers, and more cameras than you count; due to a very large gang population in the community.
Ultimately, these cards do nothing to prevent truancy, just verify that students who go are accounted for.

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.

In Texas, after the first truancy, the parents get fined $200 per occurrence of truancy. That's already in existence. I don't know how it's enforced, but I have a good kid, so I don't worry about it. They also have all of their text books and such on a school issued i-Pad.

Thats only after 3 or 4 un-excused absences and/or 18 or so total absences, excused or not.

Well the mark of the beast thing could be the RFID chip's relation to the Obamacare bill and all it entails....granted in this situation it doesn't have nearly as much meaning as what Obamacare is planning for the RFID chip which could arguably be said to be the mark of the beast, but moving on it does seem a little extreme to me but at the same time there are ways around it from what I know. Apparently the RFID chip is subject signal interruption. That being the case, if I was a student and I actually gave a # about homecoming I would just get the id (assuming it's on a card and not put on my skin or in my body) and then I'd wrap the thing in a foil shield so they had difficulty tracking me.

Like everything is all for state profits and those that are manufacturing this ID tags, what is next? the chips to be implanted into the children head when they start losing the ID tags?

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.

In a nation where the corporate dictatorship is even trying to cash out on the amount of carbon and oxygen that we humans emanate and consume we all most question what in the hell is heading our way if we do not stand up and say enough is enough we do have constitutional rights

People needs to start questioning the agenda behind anything that our corrupted government in our states and Federal government does, for corporate benefit.

Wake up America.

Thanks, I wasn't sure about when it kicked in, but I know there is an occasional news story about it.

This will come down to either being with the system or against the system. You want to keep your stuff and your way of life? Cool, get chipped when you're told to. Most folks I talk to say they won't. Ever lived in hiding? On the streets? Gone without food for days? I have. It's possible. I will not be chipped. Death does not scare me. Losing my eternal soul would. That's my conviction. Not preaching. I believe people will very soon be forced to declare what side they are on.

California's nanny state liberalism gone wild has gone too far this time! Now they are tracking all the kids and within hacking distance of the local kid abducting.....

or wait..what, Texas?


Funny stuff.

Keep in mind, Texas is the state that writes our history books (Thomas Jefferson? Who dat?)

If some kid vandalized the system -- I wouldn't hold it against him.

This stuff reeks. They need to address problems by looking at their cause, rather than trying to create a better technology to force people to comply.

I really don't want to live in a world that is "crime free" because you can't get away with it -- such power would only be abused and the world would be much worse off.

It's not what is illegal that is ruining this country right now; it's what all the Plutocrats made legal for themselves that is the real threat.

What on earth good will tracking them do? Leave the card at home.

How about this? Theres a town near here, elkhart indiana. i met an 18 year old girl there the time i was only a couple years older. She looked younger though and the cops would hassle her and ask why she wasnt in school. As soon as she told me this, im like wtf? Yeah, so if you look like youre of school going age, and are seen in public a cop can arrest you. The hell?

Makes one believe that Texas has such a problem with missing kids that they need to track them 24/7. If a kid is kidnapped who's to say the perpetrator isn't going to simply throw the ID card out the window? What if the kid doesn't want to be tracked and disables it or leaves the card? There is more sinister reasons behind this I am sure. The government knows that using school kids is a avenue to get what they want. Look at military recruiters hanging out in front of high schools is a perfect example. The next thing you will see forced implants of these chips. Schools are constantly complaining they don't have enough money, but waste money on crap like this that is a direct violation of civil rights. This won't fly.

Not the mark of the beast but definitely another way for Pharaoh to keep his servants in line...

Start with the children because eventually they grow up in the propaganda thus serving the eventual purpose albeit slower than forcing everyone right now to have the chip but once the kids have it the parents will be less apt to be able to complain or resist for themselves. I call this Trickle Up Political Correctness, control the parents through the children.

I have noticed in my lifetime how very slowly and consistently the Government through the media (TV-Movies-Music) and schools does direct and aligns thought processes as their modus operandi by very smoothly molding and manipulating conscious mind usually by using politically correct "group-think" as their foundation.

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.

Interesting that you mentioned the government in the above quote and other places in your post. I went back and read the story again. No mention of government either state or federal was ever mentioned. A school district in California has already implemented them and a couple school districts in Texas. I guess if you consider your ISD school board as "government" then OK, but to be clear, the "Government" did not decide to take this directly to Texas. The "Government" in the way you intended it, did not have one thing to do with it.

Now back to your regularly scheduled irrational fears...

Now back to your regularly scheduled irrational fears...

Bad Troll... no cookie/doughnut for you...

Who DO YOU think runs the Federally Supported School System ya genius? This is just the type of mentality that is fostered by our government and I am glad you show it so clearly here. This attitude you foster of Move along... Nothing to see here is that of a Freedom Loving Person? NOT. Also it Looks like you have quite the knowledge on CHIPPING... how come? Cause yer concerned about it or because you are on here trolling? You don't sound concerned at all so it must be that or perhaps you work for the Feds and/or State...? UtOh that sounded "irrational", my bad right? Your follow up to mine reeks of it. I don't care if 4 schools have already chipped... its fundamentally immoral! Period! Star that my friend and whoever else. Our children do not belong CHIPPED. Parents need to stay on top of there own lil kermudgins and NOT the Government!

P.S. I Suggest you turn off your regularly mind numbing and programming TV and start opening up your own mind genius instead of trolling on here to put down others which is your overall goal I assume....

I call bs. So, your theory is that the federal government is rolling this out, but only in one school district in California, and ultimately in twelve throughout Texas? Really? Hogwash, I say!

And I've gone out of my way to be upfront here at ATS about my government employment. Doesn't have anything to do with this, but nonetheless... Neither the federal or state government is in charge of school id's.

Dear Sir or Madam, You can so eloquently call BS on whatever you would like to, that's the benefit of a Semi-FREEEEEE country and bulletin board but what ya can't do is call everyone IRRATIONAL and FEARFUL.

1. Schools are run by the Government. PERIOD... for you to say otherwise is totally ridiculous! Talk about BS..
2. Chipping is immoral and for you to try to argue against it means your either A. lying or B. morally corrupt or C. Just Plain iLL... If you wanna chip yer dog or cat that's your call and freedom but keep your filthy hands and minds of our children!!!!!!!!!!!!!
3. "Calling BS" on things and throwing around terms like Irrational and Fearful are things you do to derail topics and to control the thread and to that I say FAIL! Yer not here for any other reason and you know it, I know it and most of those reading this know it.

Now back to BigBird...

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.
