In Texas Radio Frequency Identification chips are being implemented into San Antonio area schools IDs. The reason for the RFID chipped IDs is to curb the truancy problem in the Northside ISD. School officials claim knowing where every student is at all times will significantly reduced the number of truancy cases,but one student refused to participate and said the mandatory program was against her religion and claimed the RFID chip was the "mark of the beast." RT's web producer Andrew Blake gives us more on the controversial program and what it means for students.
