Student Drops Suit after School Scraps RFID Program

Ad Feedback

The San Antonio high school student kicked out for refusing to wear an ID badge with a computer chip is being allowed to return to class.

Last fall, Andrea Hernandez refused to wear the badge that uses radio frequency identification technology to track students.

Hernandez sued the school district, saying it violated her religious liberty and reminded her of the biblical "mark of the beast."

The school district said the badges helped count students and increased state funding.

The Northside Independent School District has now decided to scrap the RFID program, prompting Hernandez to drop the suit.

She's expected to return to the Science & Engineering Academy at Jay High School on Monday.
