There is no doubt we are living in increasingly Orwellian times. Most of us are not surprised when it is revealed that yet another government agency is spying on us in yet another way. Being surveilled nearly everywhere we go (and even in our own homes) has become the norm. And if it isn’t government agencies doing the spying, it is Big Tech companies. It seems like every day we are told about another privacy violation coming from Google, Facebook, and Amazon. Recently it was announced that Big Tech and government are forming an unholy dystopian alliance called HARPA that will use companies including Google, Amazon, and Apple to collect data on users who exhibit characteristics of mental illness that could lead to “violent behavior.”

Side note: If you think that avoiding the use of social media platforms will keep you safe from Big Tech’s prying eyes, I’ve got bad news for you.

Unfortunately, children are not exempt from surveillance and the growing police state.

Schools – once a place where children went to learn – have increasingly become Big Government indoctrination centers. One way in which this is becoming painfully evident is in the surveillance methods implemented by public schools.

This morning, I read a headline that sent chills down my spine:

SCHOOLS ARE USING AN APP TO TRACK STUDENTS WHILE THEY PEE

Remember hall passes? They were little slips of paper that teachers gave to students to show they had permission to leave class for a few minutes.

In hundreds of schools across the US, paper hall passes have been replaced with an app that parents and students are finding particularly invasive.

The app is called e-hallpass, and here is how it works:

At a school using e-Hallpass, a student submits a request to leave the classroom through the app. The system notes any “red flags,” such as frequent requests by the same student. The teacher then chooses whether or not to approve the request.

If the student is granted permission, they can leave and the teacher logs in the app when they return. If the student takes too long, the app automatically pings an administrator to check on them. (source)
