Apparently, a Texas school district is demanding kids wear radio chips to help school officials track them. School officials say the chips will help them fight truancy and in doing so increase the districts funding. I am not sure how I feel about this one. I can understand the purpose, but still think it is sad testimony to the direction public education is headed. Every day our schools seem to increasing resemble prisons. And while there may be some real benefits, there is something inhumane about “chipping” children.
