Editor’s Note: These badges were not only violating the students privacy and religious freedoms, but there is talk that students were complaining of chest pains while wearing the badges as well. It is a great victory such a liberty killing program was defeated!

Northside I.S.D. has scrapped its controversial program to track students through ID badges.
District officials told Fox San Antonio Monday that they have ended the program that put tracking chips in student ID badges at John Jay High School and Anson Jones Middle School.
The district started the program in 2012 to track student attendance but officials told Fox San Antonio that they never saw meaningful improvement at either campus.
