US school tag tracker project prompts court row

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-20461752


Ms Hernandez refused to wear a name tag containing an RFID (radio-frequency identification) chip

A court challenge has delayed plans to expel a Texan student for refusing to wear a radio tag that tracked her movements.

Religious reasons led Andrea Hernandez to stop wearing the tag that revealed where she was on her school campus.

The tags were introduced to track students and help tighten control of school funding.

A Texan court has granted a restraining order filed by a civil rights group pending a hearing on use of the tags.
