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.Not only are the students being tracked while they're in the state run
The sensors are in the ceiling on campus, but Mann said they keep tabs of you off campus too.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.
