- San Antonio's Northside Independent School District decided to embed locator chips in 4,200 high school and middle school student ID badges, but one student's refusal to participate has sparked a debate over privacy and religion.

- The 15-year-old sophomore's parents say that the potential for additional state funding to the district doesn't outweigh privacy and religious rights.
