Big Brother in British schools?

A school in Doncaster is trying out a scheme to track students’ movement with RFID chips woven into their school uniforms, according to a report in the BBC online news service. And the scheme even provides for the pupils’ academic records to be stored on these chips.

Sounds definitely Orwellian, doesn’t it?
