    I don't see a problem with it if it is optional. Imagine if that 7 year old from Oregon had one in his shoe. Three months later, his parents and the police still have no clue where he is. People put chips in their dogs for crying out loud.

    Optional is acceptable if it remains optional.

    I'd prefer that the schools/government didn't get involved with this sort of stuff and it was left to the parents only..

    In loco parentis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    If there is ONE thing we expect from our school system, it is to keep our children safe. Even a parent with ONE kid can lose them temporarily. It's happened to me, and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

    I can see that it's a tricky situation, thanks Chanel, I just worry that when government takes one bite of the apple they may decide they want the whole thing..

    Leg irons attached to the walls of the school would be cheaper.

    How about electric fences? :lol:

    I know the police can trace runaways from the GPS on cellphones. Not a bad use of technology in my opinion.
