RFID tracking school children

Enterprise Charter School in Buffalo, New York has started using radio frequency ID tags to scan their students. If this had happened to me while I was in school I would have invented a way around it so it should be interesting to see how it all turns out. “”” The charter school’s 422 students wear small plastic cards around their necks that have their photograph, name and grade printed on them, and include an embedded RFID chip. As the children enter the school, they approach a kiosk where a reader activates the chip’s signal and displays their photograph. The students touch their picture, and the time of their entry into the building is recorded in a database. A school staffer oversees the check-in process. “””
