My superintendent forwarded me an article regarding a student in Texas who is fighting her school’s requirement that she wear a device in school which tracks her movements throughout the school. The tracking device is part of the school’s ID cards which all students are required to carry. Both the ACLU and Christian Fundamentalists, normally at opposite ends of issues’ spectrums, have both voiced opposition to the tracking system. When the girl and her parents in the article balked at the school’s tracking system, the school agreed that the girl could simply wear an ID badge without the tracking implant; however, the girl and her parents are arguing that compliance with the school’s rule would constitute “submission of a false god”.
I do not understand this argument but probably should learn about it, as it may prove to be an issue for leaders in schools.
