School Chipped My Son's Shoe**UPDATE**
Two days ago my son came home with a chip attached to his shoe that resembled a small master lock and had a number on it. This is supposedly to monitor his activity for a grant that the school has applied for.

Problem is he is one out of 60 kids in the district that were hand picked by the the grantor and I was never notified or asked if this was alright!

Anyone else had this happen or know exactly what is in this lock looking thing?

UPDATE
This device is only a pedometer. It does have a computer chip in it and is read by a computer but is not attached to my son's name, only a number which was predetermined. Therefore we have been assured that this is only for a health and fitness study. It does not trace anything, only tracks his physical activities.

Now for the part that concerned me the most.
When your child is in a public school they have the right to use results from studies, physical and mental, they do to apply for grants from whom ever, this is the reason they sent an "opt-out" form and not an "opt-in" form. This was also not mandatory for him to participate and they call the kids in and hand this to them to put on their shoe while they watch so that no one else is actually doing in to them or for them.

While I understand all this, I wish the communication had been a little more solid instead of leaving people to wonder what in the heck is on my kids shoe...and no, I'm not the only parent around here that was asking questions so I'm obviously not the only one that missed the letter in the mail.

Bottom line, if your kid is in a public school be aware of what's going on at all times so you're able to "opt-out" if you feel uncomfortable or disagree with with a particular study.

Good thing it was not damaged or lost because yes, we would have been liable for a hundred bucks! Just as we are held liable for lost books or any other school property!

After talking with parents, school administration and legal counsel, this is how it was explained to me.

Time to sue the school.

First go buy him a new pair of shoes. Don't let your son become a guinea pig and have his and your family's privacy rights taken.

Something like this?

[link to georgeorwellnovels.com]

Two school districts in Texas have started tracking students with photo ID badges that contain radio-frequency identification (RFID) chips. The system depends on chip readers placed around campuses and on school buses. School administrators say that the tracking system has resulted in increased attendance and could help find students in the event of a fire.

Listen... I don't know what to make of this but here is one possible thing of interest.

We are on the verge of something huge... I'm not going to get onto what but let's just say most of us are not going to make it.

I have long suspected there would be a lottery. The underground bunkers that have been built are designed to hold several hundred thousand people. They need a gene pool to make sure we can go on and have enough genetic material to do so.

Is your child above average? Does he have a unique blood type?

Hi DoodleBug :). Can you post a pic so others can see what it looks like? They might be able to give you an idea of what it is. At the very least I think it's safe to assume it has a GPS in it.

You need to raise some hell. Get rid of the shoes, or get that lock off immediately and go down to the school and the Education Board and raise high holy hell. I would then move my kid out of the school if possible. This is outrageous. They are using your kid as part of their science experiment to determine both how much they can track us and how much we will tolerate. It gets the kids used to the idea of a police state.

We are free Americans with a Constitutional presumption of innocence, and a fundamental right of privacy. The government belongs to US and is OUR SERVANT, not the other way around.

You MUST fight this if for no other reason than to teach your son and his friends that they are NOT slaves to a system that degrades them and treats them, literally, like cattle.
