Students Tagged with RFID Chips in "Smart Badge Program"

Chris | InformationLiberation

High school and Junior High students in Santa Fe are being forced to be tracked like prisoners with RFID badges and have their every movement monitored by the all seeing eye of the state. It's all in the name of 'safety,' says the mentally deficient school's administrator, but students are saying they feel like prisoners.

KHOU 11 News Reports:
SANTA FE— Students in Santa Fe have to wear ID badges to class, complete with a built-in tracking device.

The Smart Badge program started this school year, and is getting mixed reviews from parents and students.

Patrick Mann is a senior and said he feels like he’s in prison.

“Normally, the one people you would track are say prisoners or somebody that’s done something very wrong,” Mann said.
Not only are the students being tracked while they're in the state run jails schools, they're even being tracked while they're out of school as well.
The sensors are in the ceiling on campus, but Mann said they keep tabs of you off campus too.


“At that Shell Station, they can see exactly where I am,” Mann said. “I know that because the school cops came up there and said, ‘Hey, you need to get back to school. We tracked you over here.’”
Of course, in reality, this is to teach the children how to live as wards of the state, that's the real purpose of government-run schools and always has been.

It's an old truism that the "safest" place on earth is in a jail cell, gladly our government-run schools are doing their part to make that a truism a reality.
Chris is an anarcho-capitalist and voluntarist who runs the website He remembers the good ol' days when school cops had to monitor the entrances and exits of schools themselves, instead of having computers corral their prisoners for them. You can read more of his commentary here.

98219 First id argue my standpoint as a human being and student.

Secondly. If they dont agree upon terms, i leave.

Thirdly. I wouldn't agree to wear there badges/cards.

Fourth and most. Id burn the card!

9626 8 seconds in the microwave fries the chips, no longer or the burn is visable on the outside.

98247 Once the batteries in the machine have proven they are valuable, next step is to make sure the batteries don't fall out of the machine.

75136 The microwave is a good way to destroy it, But my method is to tell the shove it up the BUTTS! I will also gladly put there for them. All in all, we are approaching the point of no return. So a stand will have to be made. Be ready for a fight, it is a clear and present threat.

1253 My children have these badges and my advice is wrap it in alluminum foil... blocks the tracking device. I am fighting as hard as I can to get this overturned but not really putting my hopes too high.

11397 if use RFID technology to track students, different people have different views:
now many school use this technoloy to protect students, but privacy will still be concerned.
if you are student, which is important?
if you are parents, which one is important?
if you are teacher, which one is important?
i want to say that every thing have two faces like a coin.
