Students Tagged with RFID Chips in "Smart Badge Program"

High school and Junior High students in Santa Fe are being forced to be tracked like prisoners with RFID badges and have their every movement monitored by the all seeing eye of the state. It's all in the name of 'safety,' says the mentally deficient school's administrator, but students are saying they feel like prisoners.

KHOU 11 News Reports:

    SANTA FE— Students in Santa Fe have to wear ID badges to class, complete with a built-in tracking device.

    The Smart Badge program started this school year, and is getting mixed reviews from parents and students.

    Patrick Mann is a senior and said he feels like he’s in prison.

    “Normally, the one people you would track are say prisoners or somebody that’s done something very wrong,” Mann said.

Not only are the students being tracked while they're in the state run jails schools, they're even being tracked while they're out of school as well.

    The sensors are in the ceiling on campus, but Mann said they keep tabs of you off campus too.

    [...]

    “At that Shell Station, they can see exactly where I am,” Mann said. “I know that because the school cops came up there and said, ‘Hey, you need to get back to school. We tracked you over here.’”

Of course, in reality, this is to teach the children how to live as wards of the state, that's the real purpose of government-run schools and always has been.

It's an old truism that the "safest" place on earth is in a jail cell, gladly our government-run schools are doing their part to make that a truism a reality.

The Best High School Valedictorian Speech
http://www.bspcn.com/2010/08/01/the-best-high-school-valedictorian-speech/
August 01, 2010


The 2010 Graduating Class of Coxsackie-Athens High School.

Comment: The following speech was delivered by top of the class student Erica Goldson during the graduation ceremony at Coxsackie-Athens High School on June 25, 2010

Here I stand

There is a story of a young, but earnest Zen student who approached his teacher, and asked the Master, “If I work very hard and diligently, how long will it take for me to find Zen? The Master thought about this, then replied, “Ten years . .” ?The student then said, “But what if I work very, very hard and really apply myself to learn fast — How long then?” Replied the Master, “Well, twenty years.” “But, if I really, really work at it, how long then?” asked the student. “Thirty years,” replied the Master. “But, I do not understand,” said the disappointed student. “At each time that I say I will work harder, you say it will take me longer. Why do you say that?” ?Replied the Master, “When you have one eye on the goal, you only have one eye on the path.”

This is the dilemma I’ve faced within the American education system. We are so focused on a goal, whether it be passing a test, or graduating as first in the class. However, in this way, we do not really learn. We do whatever it takes to achieve our original objective.

Some of you may be thinking, “Well, if you pass a test, or become valedictorian, didn’t you learn something? Well, yes, you learned something, but not all that you could have. Perhaps, you only learned how to memorize names, places, and dates to later on forget in order to clear your mind for the next test. School is not all that it can be. Right now, it is a place for most people to determine that their goal is to get out as soon as possible.

I am now accomplishing that goal. I am graduating. I should look at this as a positive experience, especially being at the top of my class. However, in retrospect, I cannot say that I am any more intelligent than my peers. I can attest that I am only the best at doing what I am told and working the system. Yet, here I stand, and I am supposed to be proud that I have completed this period of indoctrination. I will leave in the fall to go on to the next phase expected of me, in order to receive a paper document that certifies that I am capable of work. But I contest that I am a human being, a thinker, an adventurer – not a worker. A worker is someone who is trapped within repetition – a slave of the system set up before him. But now, I have successfully shown that I was the best slave. I did what I was told to the extreme. While others sat in class and doodled to later become great artists, I sat in class to take notes and become a great test-taker. While others would come to class without their homework done because they were reading about an interest of theirs, I never missed an assignment. While others were creating music and writing lyrics, I decided to do extra credit, even though I never needed it. So, I wonder, why did I even want this position? Sure, I earned it, but what will come of it? When I leave educational institutionalism, will I be successful or forever lost? I have no clue about what I want to do with my life; I have no interests because I saw every subject of study as work, and I excelled at every subject just for the purpose of excelling, not learning. And quite frankly, now I’m scared.

Their feeling is accurate. This is yet another case of 'guilty until proven innocent' - and in these cases of surveillance - you have to prove innocence every second.
And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin' to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take... OUR FREEDOM!

Homeschool-Unschool

But 'unschool' first... then homeschool or private school.
