Big Brother

According to this story 'Big Brother' is watching students in schools and after school too in many ways.

 

Schools across the country are adopting a variety of different tools to monitor students both in school and outside school. Among these tools are RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags embedded in school ID cards, GPS tracking software in computers, and even CCTV video camera systems. According to school authorities, these tools are being adopted not to simply increase security, but to prevent truancy, cut down on theft and even improve students’ eating habits.

Re: Big Brother

How on earth will a GPS chip aid in healthy eating?  I agree with most of the other issues.
