Considering cutting class? You may be digitally tracked while doing so

 
No one will notice if you skip class, right? Think again. The New Canaan Public School System in Connecticut is experimenting with radio frequency identification (or RFID) tags, which give school officials the ability to track the location of students and teachers on school grounds.

Students’ movements and expensive school property like computers and equipment will be monitored through ID cards and tags, which have had RFID chips implanted in them.

Numerous students and parents object to the new policy, claiming that it is a drastic step and an invasion of privacy. The school system claims that implementation of RFID tags will make the school environment more secure while eliminating the possibility of students skipping classes or leaving campus.

Would you feel safer knowing that your school has the ability to track your whereabouts? Or do you feel that this is a breach of privacy? Blog it out, babes!
