RFID Chips Added to TX Student ID’s

Students from San Antonio, Texas, in the Northside Independent School District will soon be tracked via chips implanted in their student ID cards.  These Radio Frequency Identification System (RFID) tags are becoming more and more common place.

I’m just wondering when we’ll be making the jump from inserting the chips into ID cards, to having them inserted directly into our right hand or forehead.  I see this as none too far away and an obvious next step toward government rising to full power over the American populace.

Some say this is conspiracy theory, others believe this is the infamous “mark of the beast” come to fruition.  Regardless of what you believe, it’s interesting that the bible warns us to beware.

16And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, 17and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. 18Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six. – Revelation 13:16

Northside Independent School District plans to track students next year on two of its campuses using technology implanted in their student identification cards in a trial that could eventually include all 112 of its schools and all of its nearly 100,000 students.

District officials said the Radio Frequency Identification System (RFID) tags would improve safety by allowing them to locate students — and count them more accurately at the beginning of the school day to help offset cuts in state funding, which is partly based on attendance.

Northside, the largest school district in Bexar County, plans to modify the ID cards next year for all students attending John Jay High School, Anson Jones Middle School and all special education students who ride district buses. That will add up to about 6,290 students.

The school board unanimously approved the program late Tuesday but, in a rarity for Northside trustees, they hotly debated it first, with some questioning it on privacy grounds.

State officials and national school safety experts said the technology was introduced in the past decade but has not been widely adopted. Northside’s deputy superintendent of administration, Brian Woods, who will take over as superintendent in July, defended the use of RFID chips at Tuesday’s meeting, comparing it to security cameras. He stressed that the program is only a pilot and not permanent.

  1. Couldn’t we just let them all have cell phones and track them that way? Mine is almost always in my right hand or up by my forehead anyway, so I’m sure if they wanted to track me, it would be relatively simple.

  2. Revelation is beginning to unfold…Christians be ready!

  4. We have been tracked for years since the onset of rfid in your credit cards, Cell phones, on star or any other communications device in cars and trucks, plus the NSA is opening a new facility in Utah to track e-mail, text messages and anything else we do. It has been happening since 2001 and is getting better and easier to hide since.

    Remember the book 1984? Big brother is watching our every move today!

  5. I’m a little surprised that your post doesn’t mention privacy concerns. That seems to be the most pressing issue here. The article doesn’t seem to say anything about whether parents (and students) will have the choice to opt out of the system. If they don’t, then I think that is cause for concern, and hopefully the UCLA will fight the decision as they’ve done elsewhere.

  6. It doesn’t look like they will, based upon the various articles that I’ve read about this. So yes, privacy concerns are a given. I’m concerned about this on an entirely different level, though; spiritually-speaking, I don’t believe it’s going to be mere coincidence when they start attempting to embed these things into us.

  7. Oh yeah.. I agree, Ed. But to see these chips being actually inserted into student ID cards now, here in my state, and locale, well, it caused me to sit up and take notice. It’s getting a little too close for comfort.

  8. Here, here, Butch!

  9. I’m sure there are other alternatives; again I believe we’re looking at an agenda. Thanks for sharing your thoughts here, Squeak!
