U.S. School District to Begin Microchipping Students

Monday, June 16, 2008 by: David Gutierrez | Key concepts: microchipping, parents and RFID

NaturalNews) A Rhode Island school district has announced a pilot program to monitor student movements by means of radio frequency identification (RFID) chips implanted in their schoolbags.

The Middletown School District, in partnership with MAP Information Technology Corp., has launched a pilot program to implant RFID chips into the schoolbags of 80 children at the Aquidneck School. Each chip would be programmed with a student identification number, and would be read by an external device installed in one of two school buses. The buses would also be fitted with global positioning system (GPS) devices.

Animals, farms, credit cards and now people.

Sounds like you're the type of citizen who wouldn't be on the bus, as it were. The Bus with Us.

Got something to hide, citizen?

Step over here a minute.

One of the few times I am in agreement with the ACLU. I hope they win this one.
