I know, this probably has already been posted:

Texas schools punish students who refuse to be tracked with microchips

It's basically just RFID equipped ID's. The same as I carry around with me every day at work. I don't have a choice, I can't get through the door without it! Not just the front door, but several other doors, not just in my building but all around campus. But that's a good thing. Why? Because it's pretty easy for departments to grant/revoke permissions with a couple entries in a program. It works a hell of a lot better than keys, which can be easily copied, lost or simply kept when fired. If I were canned they could revoke all of my permissions and even if I still had my card it would be useless. Plus we do check card logs as part of investigations (something was stolen from an area? Who went into that area? Who didn't? Someone has some explaining to do!)

As for the "mark-of-the-beast" stuff... that's just garbage. They said the same thing about bar-codes on food. I have absolutely zero patience with people who think like that. Being religious is fine, being stupid is not. There's a world of difference between the two.

And tracking kids in schools violates their privacy? What privacy?!? The school is RESPONSIBLE for their safety in their building, they not only have a right but a duty to know that the kids are where they are supposed to be when they are supposed to be! If I were to go to my kid's school to get him and they said, "Uh, we don't know where he is" there would be hell to pay! The reason they instituted it was truancy that is costing the district millions of dollars. Hell, the kids are lucky I'm not in charge! Carrying a card? PFFT! Here's your chip, which body part would you like it implanted in? I'd do it, damn straight!

In the school I taught in the weight lifting room was off the gym back behind some mats they used for tumbling and things. It is sort of off in a corner hidden.

While I was teaching there was a little ninth grade girl that was caught buck slap naked in the weight lifting room that was having sex with boys who would sneak in there and have intercourse with the girl and then sneak out. They caught the girl in there naked with a boy and they got the whole story.

The little girl was from a dysfunctional family (as you can imagine) and was sent to a juvenile detention facility in Nashville for like nine months. At the end of nine months she was back in the school.

At the school there was one big room in another building where the really bad kids were sent. I'm talking rough wild kids. One day at lunch the teacher in that room said she was distracted by a bunch of the kids and they surrounded her and while they were talking to her two of the kids in that class, a boy and girl, got off in a corner and were having sex while the teacher was dealing with the big group of kids were distracting her.

Another young boy told me that in the lunch room some of the boys were fingering girls under the table, sticking their hands up girls dresses and putting their fingers up inside the girls. I asked the boys why the girls don't report it and he answered me "because they like it."

Kids nowadays are wild. Talking back to teachers, doing whatever they want, disrespectful, insubordinate, etc. They are fearless and they know there is pretty much nothing you can do to them. You just wouldn't believe it.

Heard about this on the radio yesterday. At the very least, why not force kids who misbehave to be tracked? One incident and you are tagged.

Back in the 1960s, my dad's employer wanted to send him to computer training classes. Dad refused to go... he was leery of computers because he was convinced they would have something to do with the rise of the Antichrist.

I think had he lived, he would've been horrified with the current fascination with Facebook.
