The article I found brought up a very interesting situation in a school in Texas that has microchips embedded in student’s school ID’s so they can track the students. This situation seems like an abuse of technology. Although I understand the point that the school wants to track student’s to make sure they aren’t ditching school and just going to the mall but this seems like a gross breach of civil liberties. Also according to the article if the student’s don’t wear the ID’s then they won’t be able to vote for homecoming king and queen. I just think a school tracking a student just isn’t ethical and it could have consequences on these kids mental states throughout their lives, because they may feel like they are always being watched. Technology is great but this situation just seems like an abuse of technology.
