So we waited around and sure enough someone came up with the idea and even worse someone else agreed that it was a good notion and found the money to back it. Yip….. they have chipped children. Now… not the children themselves – yet – but their clothes. This tale of woe carried by the BBC is worrying:- BBC NEWS | Education | Concern at pupil data microchips
Basically someone has stitched a microchip into some kids clothes so that teacher can pick up academic information about the kids as they enter a room. It says:-
A secondary school in Doncaster has been trying out a scheme where pupils’ records are stored on a microchip embedded in their school uniform.The device enables teachers to call up information about pupils, such as their attainment, as they enter a classroom.
