Northside Ends RFID Program

By Bill O'Neil

A big victory--the word from opponents of the Northside Independent School District's Radio Frequency Identification program for students--now that the distrcit has decided to drop it. 

Attorney John Whitehead represented Andrea Hernandez in her lawsuit agaisnt the district--and told 550 KTSA News she was guilty of nothing more than being a dissenter.  

"She was punished for standing up (against) something she felt was wrong--and she knew violated her religious rights and First Amendment freedom" Whitehead said, adding "Irt's a big victory for her. She got punished for being a dissenter--which of course is something our founding fathers fought for--the right to dissent."  

Hernandez was removed from her magnet program at John Jay High School a few months ago because of her stand. 

"We're going to hope and try to gert her back in to John Jay High School where she really wants to be and should be" Whitehead said.
