School RFID Track Devices Approved: Has School Gone Too Far?
A school in San Antonio, Texas, is planning to implant student ID cards with Radio Frequency Identification System (RFID) chips next year. Over 100,000 students attend the school, making it difficult for administrators to keep tabs on them, yet some are wondering if the school is going too far.
"I think this is overstepping our bounds and is inappropriate," school trustee M'Lissa M. Chumbley told MySanAntonio.com. "I'm honestly uncomfortable about this."
Administrators, however, hope that using the RFID chips will allow for better tracking of students' habits, locations, and safety.
