US student suspended for refusing to wear school-issued tracker (Wired UK)

US student suspended for refusing to wear school-issued tracker (Wired UK):

"A Texas high school student is being suspended for refusing to wear a student ID card implanted with a radio-frequency identification chip.

Northside Independent School District in San Antonio began issuing the RFID-chip-laden student-body cards when the semester began in the autumn. The ID badge has a bar code associated with a student's Social Security number, and the RFID chip monitors pupils' movements on campus, from when they arrive to when they leave."
