Student Expelled For Refusing Spychip

Objects to school district’s ‘electronic concentration camp’

from WND

A student in a Texas school district has been told she is to be expelled for refusing to wear a student ID badge that essentially places her in an “electronic concentration camp.”

“Regimes in the past have always started with the schools, where they develop a compliant citizenry,” John Whitehead, president of the Rutherford Institute said. “They are getting students used to living in a total surveillance state where there will be no privacy, wherever you go and whatever you text or email will be watched by the government. This is where everything is headed.”

WND previously reported on the case of Andrea Hernandez, a student at John Jay High School in the Northside Independent School District in San Antonio, Texas. This year, the school implemented a new program requiring students to wear badges containing an RFID chip, which would be used to track them anywhere they went, including the restrooms. Hernandez refused to wear the chip, citing privacy and religious issues.

The RFID card is part of a pilot program called the “Student Locator Project” at John Jay and Anson Jones Middle School, which the district hopes to expand to cover all of its 112 schools, with a total student population of 100,000.

Your presentation at the Temora p/s was woendrful. With all the work (you and) the boys have done it occured to me to ask when will you know you have collected enough money? Your efforts have been able to support/purchase acres of jungle. So, do you know just how many acres will be enough? This is a genuine question as HOW will you/we know if your (an other charities) efforts have worked as you hope to continue on to support other primates? Regards c.
