    Brazilian schools microchip student gear to cut truancy

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-17484532

    Schools in Brazil have started to place computer chips in school uniforms to keep track of pupils and reduce truancy.

    Some 20,000 pupils in the north-eastern city of Vitoria da Conquista will have microchips embedded in their school T-shirts.

    The parents will get a text message when their children arrive at school, or if they are late for classes.

    The authorities say the measure will help teacher-parent relations.

    How long before they chip the students themselves?

    And then the teachers, just to make sure they aren't alone with students for TOO long...

    And then the parents, to make sure they are spending enough quality time with their children...
