The public school system is an indoctrination center, take him out of that cesspool. I endured it for my childhood, and I am still affected by the bullies.

Let him learn what he wants to, show him the truth and all the horrible things in this world. Show him what it means to be a good person, instead of a mainstream trend following government dependent atheist.

I have updated the original post will repeat it here.

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.
