April 10, 2012 - In the city of Vitoria da Conquista in the South American country of Brazil, 20,000 grade school students now wear uniforms that have GPS chips embedded in them. The uniforms have been updated to house the chips so that parents can keep track of their children's whereabouts. The chip automatically sends parents a text message when their children enter school grounds. If the children are more than 20 minutes late for school, it also sends a text message. The government in Vitoria da Conquista has spent close to 700,000 dollars designing and manufacturing the new uniforms and the city plans to make more so that all of the almost 50,000 public school students in the city can use the uniforms by 2013.
