Re: Court Rules Texas Schoolgirl Must Be RFID Tagged Or Expelled
There are a number of things that strike me here.
First, they offered her a lanyard with no RFID tag... it's like wearing a school uniform. There are fair and legitimate arguments for allowing staff to quickly and easily identify those who should be at the school. Yes, the lanyards can be passed around, but if you don't have one, you're out.
Second, attendance does not just have to be to get money. Quick, accurate attendance can also help the school avoid legal troubles should a kid skip class undetected. Truancy is obviously a problem, so if the school knows who is in class and whether the "skippers" are in the building, they can manage attendance better and get the calls out to the parents to let them know the kid is not there and try and find them.
Either way, the school is doing nothing wrong here. They are trying to manage liability and these tags do that in a number of ways.
