Uniform Microchip Lets Parents Keep Track Of Kids At School

Brazilian schools microchip T-shirts to cut truancy.   BBC. 

A novel way of letting parents keep up with their kids.

“We noticed that many parents would bring their children to school but would not see if they actually entered the building because they always left in a hurry to get to work,” he told the Associated Press news agency.

The chips are placed underneath the badge of a school uniform, or on a sleeve.

When a pupil passes through sensors at the school entrance, the chip sends an SMS message to parents.

If they are more than 20 minutes late for class, their families are alerted with a different message: “Your child has still not arrived at school.”

Almost seems like roll call in jail.  But probably a great way to ascertain kids are making it to class after all.

Researchers at Columbia University in New York measured exposure levels of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) in 253 non-smoking women in New York who gave birth between 1999 and 2006 and found that women exposed to more traffic pollution during pregnancy had children with more anxiety, depression and attention problems.
