In Vitoria da Conquista, Brazil, 20,000 grade school students have recently started wearing uniforms embedded with GPS chips similar to those used in pet trackers. The chips automatically send parents a text message as soon as their children enter the school grounds, or if their children are late for more than 20 minutes.

How do they wash the shirts without frying the hardware? Interesting.
Ok, the problem with your theory about chipping newborns is this-All current subcutaneous devices are passively powered. They can't communicate with GPS actively because they don't have dedicated power source. These shirts do, this is why I'm a little puzzled. How do you wash something that has a battery in it?

Precondition us and them, and they won't object at all to a small chip under the skin.
All to protect the children, of course...

What is to prevent kids from going to school, changing their clothes in the restroom, putting their uniform in their locker so that GPS chip shows them being on campus- and then hauling butt? Kids already do that sort of thing all the time!
