Re: Student Suspended for Refusing to Wear a School-Issued RFID Tracker
A Texas high school student is being suspended for refusing to wear a student ID card implanted with a radio-frequency identification chip.

Northside Independent School District in San Antonio began issuing the RFID-chip-laden student-body cards when the semester began in the fall. The ID badge has a bar code associated with a student’s Social Security number, and the RFID chip monitors pupils’ movements on campus, from when they arrive until when they leave.

Radio-frequency identification devices are a daily part of the electronic age — found in passports, and library and payment cards. Eventually they’re expected to replace bar-code labels on consumer goods. Now schools across the nation are slowly adopting them as well.

The suspended student, sophomore Andrea Hernandez, was notified by the Northside Independent School District in San Antonio that she won’t be able to continue attending John Jay High School unless she wears the badge around her neck, which she has been refusing to do. The district said the girl, who objects on privacy and religious grounds, beginning Monday would have to attend another high school in the district that does not yet employ the RFID tags.

A Social Security number, or SSN, is a nine digit number that is unique to you. The first three numbers give your area of location at birth. The second two are the group numbers, which identify your location more specifically within your area. The last four numbers are serial numbers that have no specific meaning. They are assigned in order from 0001 to 9999, and when those are used up, the first five numbers change. The Social Security Administration has a very specific method for assigning numbers, which you can read more about on the SSA's website for teens (see the Links table).

The main use of your SSN is to track your Social Security benefits and income for taxes. However, others may use your SSN as a way to identify you. Banks, hospitals, and private businesses frequently reference your personal information with your SSN in order to make their record keeping easier. As you can probably guess, the fact that much of your private information is tied to one number that belongs only to you can pose some problems.

What kind of problems?

One of the most common forms of identity theft is when someone discovers your SSN and uses it to access personal information. For example, someone with your name and SSN could walk into your bank pretending to be you, claim that they forgot their (your) account number, and instead provide your SSN. They might make changes to your account by making withdrawals or transferring funds. They could open checking accounts, apply for credit cards and loans in your name, and more. A hacker can use your SSN to view personal information that you have placed online. Many people do not discover that they have become a victim of identity theft until they try to make a big purchase such as a car or house.

Re: Student Suspended for Refusing to Wear a School-Issued RFID Tracker
In the United States, a Social Security number (SSN) is a nine-digit number issued to U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and temporary (working) residents under section 205(c)(2) of the Social Security Act, codified as 42 U.S.C. § 405(c)(2). The number is issued to an individual by the Social Security Administration, an independent agency of the United States government. Its primary purpose is to track individuals for Social Security purposes.[1]

A Social Security number may be obtained by applying on Form SS-5, "Application for A Social Security Number Card".[2]

Over time, the number has been used for more diverse purposes than simply taxes, essentially making it a de facto national identification number.

Good on the school for suspending the hippy little POS. You DO NOT have freedom of movement on government property, especially when MY TAX DOLLARS are paying to educate your ass.

This whole "Omg let me FREAK OUT" over RFID is such hippy bullshit.

If you are actually for real ... I can not think of anything to address your stupidity except," you are so very stupid!" There, that is the best you get, you are not worth anymore.
