Would You Object to a School Keeping Track of Your Student with a Microchip?
It would be implanted in an ID card, not the student, but a Texas school district has still managed to upset at least one parent by planning to keep track of students with microchips.
A Texas school district has upset at least one parent with a plan to keep track of students with microchips. The microchips, however, will not be implanted in the students, just in mandatory identity cards that students would be required to wear.
According to Fox News, a school district spokesman explained it as “GPS in school,” a way to always know where the children are while on campus. One parent reportedly objected to the plan, but was not available to speak to Fox News about it. The school district reportedly claims it would help identify students who claim to be in school when they are not. But others say students would just stash the ID cards in their lockers and people would believe they’re on campus, when they might well not be.
How would you feel about this type of technology being used keep track of your child while attending school? Would you be comfortable with it or is it too intrusive?
