    High School Student Sues against having to wear an RF ID Badge

    This is in my city but a different school district. I was going to try to steer it toward the legal issues of the case, but figured I'd just toss it out raw instead, and respond later.

    A federal judge Tuesday ruled that Northside Independent School District can transfer a student from her magnet school for refusing to wear her student ID badge to protest a new electronic tracking system.

    Is this the same girl that refused to accept a card without a photo as well? Sorry, I don't have time to read the article but if I recall, she's claiming these tracking devices are the mark of Satan or some other religious hogwash, right? So she's going to tie up the courts with a frivolous, religion-based suit. I'm disgusted by the whole thing.

    Seeing how freedom of religion is a protected right, it's the gov't that's tieing up the courts. What's the harm in letting her go without?

    If you let one go without, then fairly you have to let them all go without. This, at a time when the public is screaming for more security at schools? It's nonsensical and illogical. Besides, how was this woman thinking she was going to get a driver's license?

    Re: High School Student Sues against having to wear an RF ID Badge

    There's a great piece written by Amy Gutmann called "Challenges of multiculturalism in democratic education".

    How can a multicultural society educate its members for democracy? Many contemporary controversies about public schooling turn on the clash of two apparently competing educational aims: securing common values and respecting cultural differences. This chapter argues that democratic education can integrate both civic and multicultural aims, and not merely in a pragmatic compromise but in a genuinely principled combination. 7 - Challenges of multiculturalism in democratic education - University Publishing Online

    I can claim Mondays are my high holy days and sue my employer for those days to be double overtime. Seriosly, its ridiculous to claim a magnetic strip is against her religion. Its more like an irratioal superstition.

    And yes, drivers licenses now have chips in them.

    Drivers licenses have electronic tracking chips in them? I'll have to check this out.

    Not just yet.

    CNet News reports that New York state has begun offering enhanced driver's licenses embedded with radio frequency identification (RFID) chips, which can be read from a distance by a receiver device.

    The new RFID driver's license, which will cost an additional $30 over the standard $50 licensing fee, will provide identification that can be used at the border in lieu of a U.S. passport, which these days is also RFID-equipped.
