San Antonio, TX – A judge has ruled that a Texas public school district can force students to wear locator chips while on school property. As reported by Reuters, the ruling was made in the case of a teen who was expelled from school for refusing to wear the device, a requirement at the magnet school within the San Antonio Northside School District.
Senior policy analyst with the American Civil Liberties Union, one of the organizations who opposed the school requirement, Jay Stanley is quoted in the report as stating of the issue, “We don’t want to see this kind of intrusive surveillance infrastructure gain inroads into our culture… We should not be teaching our children to accept such an intrusive surveillance technology.”
The teen and her father reportedly have until the spring semester begins to decide whether to remain at the school or return to her home campus.
