Microchips in Uniforms Used to Track Kids

A school in Brazil started using microchips embedded in its school uniforms to track students. It is the same microchips used on pets.

The purpose of the tracker is to notify parents via text message when their children enter school grounds. It also sends them a notification if their children are more than 20 minutes late.

The chip is placed under the school’s coat of arms or in a sleeve of the uniform.

Some think it’s a great way to keep children safe if they were abducted or go missing. Others say it is an invasion of privacy.

What do you think of this?
