Texas Schools Punishing Students Who Refuse To Wear Microchip Tracking Devices

Via Russia Today, being remotely tracked may become part and parcel of being a teenager:

A school district in Texas came under fire earlier this year when it announced that it would require students to wear microchip-embedded ID cards at all times. Now, students who refuse to be monitored say they are feeling the repercussions.

Students who refuse to walk the school halls with the card in their pocket or around their neck claim they are being tormented by instructors, barred from participating in certain school functions, [and] turned away from common areas like cafeterias and libraries.

Andrea Hernandez, a sophomore at John Jay, said educators have ignored her pleas to respect her privacy and told her she cannot participate in school elections if she refuses to comply with the tracking program.

After Hernandez refused to wear an RFID chip, WND reported that Deputy Superintendent Ray Galindo issued a statement to the girl’s parents: “We are simply asking your daughter to wear an ID badge as every other student and adult on the Jay campus is asked to do.” If she is allowed to forego the tracking now, the repercussions will be harsher than just revoking voting rights for homecoming contests once the school makes location-monitoring mandatory, he argued.

    1. Accept ID.
    2.Put ID in Microwave.
    3.Treat ID liberally with High Voltage/Low Current electricity (Stun Gun).
    4.Scrub vigorously with powerful Rare Earth magnets.
    5.Play dumb when ID is no longer electronically readable.

    Works for both State Driver’s Licenses and Currency, I’m sure it will work on these IDs too.

      Sounds like good tips. Are all four necessary? (5 is a given)

        I did all 4 on my State DL.

        The magstrip didn’t actually fail til I used the rare earth magnets on it.

        Plus I used a dremel tool to buff off some of the optical  bar code on the back. Not sure how much error correction they have in that bar code, so I erred on the side of caution.

        Now mine is entirely machine unreadable and most likely no longer valid.

    their cellphones are better tracking devices
    why not just use them
    if they simply demand everyone carry an iPhone during school
    then everybody would be way kewl with it

    Large centralized schools depersonalized, mass-indoctrination centres, hardly the one room school-houses that produced Thoreau, Hemingway and the Genius of  the aircraft age, the automobile age, and the Science advances made by America these past two centuries? Centralization made possible, even necessary by the rise of the industrial age, even poisons the very fruit of its origins, America falls on its own petard?

    Education has changed. ID tagged students carry ID tagged books, use ID tagged supplies. Various pills inside their bodies enhance and regulate their abilities. Genetic control. Information control. Emotion control. School control. Everything is monitored, and kept under control. Education has changed. The age of learning has become the age of control. All in the name of averting catastrophe from people who think for themselves.

    This tracking device is ridicules and if I had a kid at that school…I would pull my kid out to home school! That’s still legal isn’t it? It seems every day another piece of America’s freedoms are being taken away. THIS MUST STOP NOW…BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE! PICKET, RIOT, WHATEVER IT TAKES TO END THIS NONSENSE NOW!
