I don't see how electronic tagging will improve anything here. And I have to say that I personally would be totally against this kind of thing. Yes, parents have a responsibility. But this really goes way too far.

On the other hand, my very strong hunch is that we are not getting the full story here. There is info that's being left out. I'd like to know the race and other circumstances of this person and of the school officials. And a little more about what the girls are doing, what their version is, etc.

On principle we have to remember, especially in today's climate, that while the government can and should do some things, it may not always be in the hands of people with good intentions. Imagine a John Ashcroft or George Bush with the powers to force people to wear electronic tags...

Oh,I'm not supporting electronic tagging at all. What I'm suggesting is we create solutions that fit American sensibilities. If punishment isn't the best method, maybe reward is.
