43,000 Brazilian Students Will Be Required to Wear Locator Chips on their Uniforms

101

Schools in northern Brazil are now embedding their uniforms with locator chips that allow the tracking and monitoring of their students. Advertised as a “way of informing parents in case their children skip school”, the widespread use of these devices and the information they can potentially gather is rather unsettling. There no “off function” on these chips. I read some comments stating that these chips will “help finding kidnapped kids”. Really? What if  the kidnappers made the kid, like, um, NOT wear the shirt? Lame excuses to hide the real agenda here, constantly increasing surveillance and monitoring in the name of “security”. Here’s an article on the “intelligent uniforms” that are actually worn by 20,000 students and required on all 43,000 of the Brazilian locale in 2013.

Locator chips keep track of students in Brazil

Grade-school students in a northeastern Brazilian city are using uniforms embedded with locator chips that help alert parents if they’re cutting classes, the city’s education secretary said Thursday.

Twenty thousand students in 25 of Vitoria da Conquista’s 213 public schools started using T-shirts with chips earlier this week, secretary Coriolano Moraes said by telephone.

By 2013, all of the city’s 43,000 public school students, aged 4 to 14, will be using the chip-embedded T-shirts, he added.

Radio frequency chips in “intelligent uniforms” let a computer know when children enter school and it sends a text message to their cell phones. Parents are also alerted if kids don’t show up 20 minutes after classes begin with the following message: “Your child has still not arrived at school.”

“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 on time,” Moraes said in a telephone interview. “They would always be surprised when told of the number times their children skipped class.

After a student skips classes three times parents will be asked to explain the absences. If they fail to do so, the school may notify authorities, Moares said.

The city government invested $670,000 to design, test and make the microchipped T-shirts, he said.

The chips, similar to those used to track pets in many countries, are placed underneath each school’s coat-of-arms or on one of the sleeves below a phrase that says: “Education does not transform the world. Education changes people and people transform the world.”

The T-shirts, can be washed and ironed without damaging the chips, Moraes said adding that the chips have a “security system that makes tampering virtually impossible.”

Moraes said that Vitoria da Conquista is the first city in Brazil “and maybe in the world” to use this system.

“I believe we may be setting a trend because we have received many requests from all over Brazil for information on how our system works,” he said.

Although I live in the South side of Brazil, if there is something I like to care is human rights, although I know only a few things about laws. As my mate said, the majority of people here do not even care about this kind of news, because they are busy… Busy watching [Censored by me] channels (case of my step father, poor step father), soccer or violent games, see for yourself! Go ahead and start asking them what they think about television, and if they make something unusual or know some news that were not shown on television, a… Read more »

I only saw this today… : ( Not a single line on a paper or miserable 15 secs on tv… NOBODY here in Brazil -that I know of – knows about this. It is indeed outrageous. What drives me insane about this sordidness, is that they picked a small town in the middle of nowhere, in forgotten Northeastern (our version of wild west), where entire generations had their share of arrested development. Their misery (famine/lack of social services/ignorance) was, is and will always be artificial. I would not be surprised whether these parents are actually asking for it… This small… Read more »

IT WILL NOT STAND. It'll be dropped much sooner than you can think of, as early as a local Public Prosecutor will take it to courts, and such UNCONSTITUTIONAL measure will be brought down, piece of cake. Because, local executive power authorities no NOT have such legal power. Not even State legislators can do it, let alone a department of municipal executive branch. Besides, only NATIONAL Congress can legislate regarding individual rights. Besides, when it's about LIBERTY and personal privacy – the top level of individual rights – it's much more difficult to modify, NOT EVEN CONGRESS CAN MODIFY THEM.… Read more »

I wonder how long it will be before kids… I dunno locate the chips but them out of the shirt… and send them in with a friend to cover for them while the skip classes without anyone noticing since oh I dunno it's all track by computers so nobody is paying any real attention.

I really agree with everyone. No doubt about it. But let me say one thing in the other direction:

I'll bet those Brazilian Soccer Players who got lost in the Andes from a plane crash and had to eat the dead ones – I'll bet those guys would have given anything to have one of those lo-cater chips on them.

JUst One.

"What if the kidnappers made the kid, like, um, NOT wear the shirt?" – VC

Right.

As far as kids skipping school, you can't save your kids from EVERYTHING. Be better parents, not better big brothers. If you raise your kids properly, they won't skip or they will only do it very seldom. We all make mistakes and fall prey to trends and peer pressure from time to time. We live, we learn.

People are such control freaks. Thinking we can prevent/control everything is just not realistic.

"Education changes People"…of course it does. Education is something designed to shape a large mass of people to go into one direction. Like Cattle we're all being told where to go with our lives instead of finding that journey for ourselves…I'm grateful for my education, but I think in many ways I've lost my freedom because of it…remember that oftentimes without an education you are nothing. To cope in this world without it is like trying to scream without a voice…Education: it has good short term intentions, but remember: The Road To HELL Is Paved With Good Intentions……all this just… Read more »

Watch'em embrace it like the latest soup opera trend…

All of this just reminds me of how much I hate how basically all my social circle is high tech obsessed and constantly act like I'm some sort of wild animal for not owning a goddamn cellphone.

You wrote rhetorically, "what if the kid doesn't wear the shirt?" and so expect to see a push soon to imbed the chips in students. Since the shirts are not safe enough, parents will be led to clamor for implantation. Incrementalism works!

This is dumb and a waste of money. Everyone knows about it so if a child is kidnapped all they have to do is stick the shirt in/on a random car going in the opposite direction and the kidnappers make a clean getaway while the police chase a stupid shirt. Of course then the only solution will be to implant the chips under the skin. This is just a set up to get people to accept the real agenda.

The global tracking system grows and grows each day.

All of this seems like scary foreshadows of the Mark of the Beast. It's like each month there's a new innovation that gets us closer.

And now Nokia is doing a "digital tattoo" that can communicate with your phone.

if they are bothered with the problem of kids skipping school, they aren't truly fixing the core of the problem. They are just scaring kids into complying. i mean, how many kids must be skipping school?

"RFID in School Shirts must be trial run" The trial runs began a LONG time ago! We're way past that process. Now we're in the portion of the game where they will try and BRAINWASH us into accepting these things because not everyone BROADCASTS themselves on and offline, so RFID tracking will NEED to be EVERYWHERE, eventually. RFID is employed in MANY areas of society. RFID is used to TRACK their livestock (humans) in: * 1. A lot of BANK's ATM & DEBIT cards (easily cloned and tracked) * 2. Subway, rail, bus, other mass transit passes (all of your… Read more »
