California is not only financially broke, but intelligently broke as well. These morons think nothing of their Communistic ideology by placing tracking devices on children (see article below).
So let’s see how this will pan out. Child gives their friend the tracking device to him and takes it to class. Well, the tracking system identifies that both students are attending class. And since the teachers and administrators are too damn lazy to take attendance themselves, taxpayers have spent thousands of dollars for nothing. And to think that these teachers are under paid, over worked and in need of millions of dollars more from the federal coffers. California would be a joke if it were not so pathetic.
California students get tracking device
The Associated Press
RICHMOND, Calif.—California officials are outfitting preschoolers in Contra Costa County with tracking devices they say will save staff time and money.
The system was introduced Tuesday. When at the school, students will wear a jersey that has a small radio frequency tag. The tag will send signals to sensors that help track children’s whereabouts, attendance and even whether they’ve eaten or not.
School officials say it will free up teachers and administrators who previously had to note on paper files when a child was absent or had eaten.
Sung Kim of the county’s employment and human services department said the system could save thousands of hours of staff time and pay for itself within a year.
It cost $50,000 and was paid by a federal grant.
