More on child-tracking


We’ve just put up our report on two other forms of child-tracking, both of them closely related to chipping children.

The first is the growing trend towards installing biometric systems in school libraries and canteens; the second is the use of mobile and GPS location technology to track children’s whereabouts.

We were hoping to include a section on the increasing use of CCTV in schools, but have been hampered by the fact that we received only 11 replies to our Freedom of Information Act requests to over 200 schools. It seems that it is yet to dawn on rather a lot of schools that they are public authorities with FOIA obligations.
