Pupils tracked with chips!

Love it.

Check out Pupils can be tracked round town with chips - very interesting concept.

Children are to be tracked around schools and other sites they visit for lessons via microchips embedded in their uniforms.The manufacturer of a radio-frequency identification chip is marketing it nationwide following a trial with 19 pupils at Hungerhill School in Doncaster this year.
The chip is embroidered into school jumpers using conductive “smart threads”. This allows a pupil’s identity, photographs and other details, such as whether they misbehaved in their last lesson, to flash up on the nearest teacher’s laptop or hand-held computer.

I wonder if this will become the norm and what pupils and parents think about it.

Unfortunately I suspect that when I was a kid I would have been working ways around how to fool the teachers!!!
