School’s Extreme Step To Combat Truancy
March 26, 2012 by staff
School’s Extreme Step To Combat Truancy, In Vitoria da Conquista, Brazil, 20,000 grade school students have recently started wearing uniforms embedded with GPS chips similar to those used in pet trackers.
The chips automatically send parents a text message as soon as their children enter the school grounds, or if their children are late for more than 20 minutes.
The microchip is embedded either under the school’s coat of arms or in one of the sleeves. According to the city’s education secretary Coriolano Moraes, the local government decided to launch the project because parents “would always be surprised when told of the number times their children skipped class.”
