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.
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.

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.
