Schools Should Have ID Trackers

Schools Should Have ID Trackers

Imagine getting kidnapped and no one could find you.

With ID trackers the school can locate you and alert the authorities. There should be ID trackers, because it keeps students safe. There also should be ID trackers, because they can keep you from doing something stupid like robbing a store.When my sister was in high school she told me that she overheard some boys talking about robbing another school. Two days later three boys were arrested for theft at a school.If we had ID trackers then the school could listen to bad conversations and stop things like robbing another school. ID trackers will improve the wellbeing of many students all over our nation.

ID trackers help protect a schools student and ID trackers also keeps students from killing themselves. If a student wants to commit suicide than his or her parents could track him or her and stop him or her from killing themselves.His or her parents could also listen to him using audio technology to find out what he is planning on doing. Another positive effect is that if a student gets lost or kidnapped then their teachers and parents could use their ID to track that student.ID trackers don’t have to be used to locate the student, but they could be used to find the student’s ID. Yes ID trackers do violate your privacy by listening to your conversations,but at the cost of your safety. Yes you would have to carry your ID everywhere you go,but thats a small price to pay to keep students safe. Yes the school will have to pay a lot of money, but being safe is worth the money. The ID trackers would would help a big problem all over the nation.

An 11 year old sixth grader from Bailey Middle School named Jacorey Jackson said, “It feels like someone’s watching you at all times”,he feels safe with an ID tracker. In an article from Wired it said that ,”Tagging school children with RFID chips is uncommon, but not new. A federally funded preschool in Richmond, California, began embedding RFID chips in students’ clothing in 2010. And an elementary school outside of Sacramento, California, scrubbed a plan in 2005”. Other schools have all  been using ID trackers. These schools are very smart, because the ID trackers are keeping their students safe.

So there should be trackers on student ID’s to keep students out of harms way.ID tracker could even be put on adult ID’s.What if a student or co-worker is kidnapped.All you would have to do is find there tracker signal and then you contact the police and they will find them. The problem here is that kids are not as safe as they should be.  By enforcing ID trackers people will be more safe.
