Starting this fall, all students at John Jay High School and Anson Jones Middle School are required to carry identification cards embedded with a microchip. They are tracked by the dozens of electronic readers installed in the schools’ ceiling panels.
One student has apparently retaliated by hacking into the school’s website and shutting it down. That is not an acceptable response to such policies. Lashing out is not the way to handle this problem. Rather, parents should take charge and mention to school administrators that parents have the right to home school their children. You do not have to put up with this.
