Whoo boy. What's wrong with this picture?
I'm going to skip over the idea that the schools in question have a large Latino population, largely because that is an assumption not based in anything but how bad this COULD be. However, the bagging and tagging of children, essentially turning school into house arrest, this seems a little over the top. Put aside the fact that an intrepid student can figure out how to beat the system when and if necessary; treating our kids like inmates in school isn't going to keep them safer, or make them go to class. The measures, as well as the consequences for non-compliance, simply enhance the notion that we are turning into an Orwellian state, where Big Brother is watching you. The school system essentially becomes a stalker.
To be honest, why hasn't anyone even thought of the idea that RFID isn't the most secure tracking system in the world, and these children can be tracked by anyone equipped to do it, such as people with card scanners.
I've said enough. Read it here for yourself, draw your own conclusion.
