Oh woops. completely over looked the non active part so yeah my fault. But from my understanding, this chip allows the school to know at all times the locations of the students, so I'm assuming that would require active or semi active, which do have range ability. It's an assumption either way though so who knows

The problem with this story is there's no information on WHY the judge made the ruling, or even what the ruling actually was. Based on what I see here, it could be that the university wants students to carry ID badges or ID cards when on campus, and it might be to track their use of resources or it might be to only let authorized people into the pool. Or it might admittedly be for some truly moronic reason.
Yeah...there are different forms that RFID can take from pacemakers to security cards so I am speaking a bit out of context by generalizing them together. I guess my main worry here is that these ones in particular give them the ability to give them constant monitoring ability of yourself. I also worry about how easily this can be abused

If you feel comfortable having your child wear technology with such capabilities...to each his own I suppose, but that is a massive difference than a human with pen and paper.
