Federal Judge Nixes Privacy for Students

SAN ANTONIO (Reuters) - A public school district in Texas can require students to wear locator chips when they are on school property, a federal judge ruled on Tuesday in a case raising technology-driven privacy concerns among liberal and conservative groups alike.

U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia said the San Antonio Northside School District had the right to expel sophomore Andrea Hernandez, 15, from a magnet school at Jay High School, because she refused to wear the device, which is required of all students.

The judge refused the student's request to block the district from removing her from the school while the case works its way through the federal courts.

The American Civil Liberties Union is among the rights organizations to oppose the district's use of radio frequency identification, or RFID, technology.

"We don't want to see this kind of intrusive surveillance infrastructure gain inroads into our culture," ACLU senior policy analyst Jay Stanley said. "We should not be teaching our children to accept such an intrusive surveillance technology."

The district's RFID policy has also been criticized by conservatives, who call it an example of "big government" further monitoring individuals and eroding their liberties and privacy rights.

The Rutherford Institute, a conservative Virginia-based policy center that represented Hernandez in her federal court case, said the ruling violated the student's constitutional right to privacy, and vowed to appeal.

Considering Reuters record, we can bet big money and win that this judge was appointed by a Dem. They always mention when one is a Rep appointee. Rest of the story is here.

Just think of the benefits of this on a nationwide scale. When you are killed by a thug they wont have to waste precious man hours trying to locate your body. If you anger the government enough they will know exactly where to send that predator drone to take you out. Cool

This is only during school hours and on school grounds, right?

It doesn't matter when or where it is, it is an invasion of privacy. Do you honestly believe that if the students are forced to carry these things there is no one, anywhere, who would be able to access the information outside of school? Seriously.

Schools have an excellent track record of protecting student privacy.

Precisely my point. I'll tell you this much, if my daughter's school were to enact a similar policy she wouldn't have to make the argument, I would pull her and find somewhere else for her to be educated.

Am I stretching it when I see this as a comparison to the mark of the beast? Those with the chip can stay in school, learn and work. Those who refuse will be expelled.

Too soon. It's only a badge at this point.

Even when I was it school a zillion years ago it was decided that kids had little rights. Back then it was their ability to search any locker they want.

Sorry but I'm not following. This is to track where they are in school only. No?
