Glancing Blow: I guess she doesn't carry a cell phone with all that tracking capability
7th Son of a 7th Son: Aww how cute. She thinks she matters.
HempHead: Has any started selling child locator GPS' to pedofiles yet?
Fubini: xanadian: But, in other news, why the hell is it so damn important that the school have RFID chips (yes, I know the kid won't wear the badges even w/o the chip because it signals participation in the program) on all their kids? I can see them using it as a safety feature, but to *expel* someone for not complying? Seems extreme to me. "Yes, we want you to be safe, but if you don't want to be safe, we're gonna f*ck with your future."Because some people think schools should be more like prisons. A tracking badge just lets you know where everyone is at all times. A computer system compares your current location with where they think you should be, and red-flags anything that looks suspicious. Not in class on time? The system knows. Go to the bathroom to smoke? The system knows how long you've been in there. Skipping school? The system logs whenever you enter or leave the building.It's the ultimate punitive measure. You must do exactly what we tell you to, and in exactly the manner proscribed at the exact time, or else we know, and we'll punish you for it.
Honest Bender: baka-san: That said, it's a public school(did some checking), and the supreme court has ruled time and time again, you are a minor in a public school, you can leave certain rights at the door.The constitution specifically states that our rights are inalienable...
Private_Citizen: She should consider the first in a lifetime of lessons entitled: "No, you aren't special."
