Mizzou Students Meet Big Brother

This may actually be good for the country.

The University of Missouri (Mizzou) is forcing students to download a tracking app to their cellphones so that university officials can keep track of which students attend class, and which ones do not. Mizzou officials claim that they are tracking students for their own good.

Students that are new to Mizzou’s campus this semester are required to participate in a tracking program that allows university officials to monitor their class attendance, according to a report by the Kansas City Star....

We can hope that the little darlings will resent and resist this modified Panopticon, now and for the rest of their lives.   That's the only benefit I can think of.
