RFID Chips Embedded In School Uniforms Keep Track Of Students In Brazil
By Stan Lehman | HuffingtonPost.com
Grade-school students in a northeastern Brazilian city are using uniforms embedded with locator chips that help alert parents if theyíre cutting classes, the cityís education secretary said Thursday.
Twenty thousand students in 25 of Vitoria da Conquistaís 213 public schools started using T-shirts with chips earlier this week, secretary Coriolano Moraes said by telephone.
By 2013, all of the cityís 43,000 public school students, aged 4 to 14, will be using the chip-embedded T-shirts, he added.
Radio frequency chips in "intelligent uniforms" let a computer know when children enter school and it sends a text message to their cell phones. Parents are also alerted if kids donít show up 20 minutes after classes begin with the following message: "Your child has still not arrived at school."
The chips, similar to those used to track pets in many countries, are placed underneath each schoolís coat-of-arms or on one of the sleeves below a phrase that says: "Education does not transform the world. Education changes people and people transform the world."
