Sure there is. Cost. What is the benefit of this system? How can it be enforced? Since it relies on children doing a thing every time whatever it's
purpose is it will fail.
Unless children have changed dramatically since I was one I foresee dead chips abounds and very little consistent wearing/carrying of tags. I would
also expect chips being re-written for the fun of it wheres Timmy's card reads Susy's name and so on.
This is a pointless expenditure. But of course when a thing is funded by taxpayers "pointless expenditure" really means "necessary to life".
I wouldnt be surprised one bit if the backstory behind the company setting this up is nearly identical to the nepotistic crony debacle that is behind
the push for "microstamping."
The best friends an insignificant start-up entrepreneur can have are ones in political positions that can sign off of half-brained ideas and funnel
tax dollars into your pocket. Throw in a "think of the children" and you're set to be a millionaire.
