Student’s ID Protest Goes to Court

Andrea Hernandez probably didn't think her Christian beliefs would cause a problem at her San Antonio, Texas, high school. But when she refused to wear a school ID badge implanted with an RFID tracking chip on grounds that it signified the Mark of the Beast (from the biblical Book of Revelation), she sparked a court battle and prompted discussions about how far schools should go in keeping track of their students. Hernandez, who was initially told she would be expelled from her magnet school on Monday if she continued her refusal, was granted a temporary restraining order allowing her to attend classes pending further hearings next week.
