Scottish Church School mulls introduction of GPS microchip in students’ ID
Scottish Church School is mulling the introduction of a system which would help the school authority and the guardians track their children after they are gone from the school premises.
GPS connectivity could be arranged where a microchip would be installed in the identity card of every student, a source from the school authority informed. It may be recalled that the family of Bisweswar Paul, a Class X student of Scottish Church School, who had gone missing, agitated in front of the principal Bidhas Sanyal in September this year.
The day was a Monday and Teachers’ day as well. But the intensity of the protest was so heavy, that the principal fell ill and he needed to be admitted in a city hospital. The family members and the other protesting guardians, who were alleging school’s negligence as the boy was last seen in school, were unperturbed with illness of principal, demanded his arrested.
The principal on the other hand, ruled out the entire allegation framed by protesting guardians saying that the boy was suspended from the school a few days ago for forging the mathematics answer sheet, where he put a number with red ink over the actual number that he had got. He was asked to attend school only when in the time of examination.
The school’s decision of fixing GPS in the identity card came after the family of Bisweswar Paul allegedly threatened to kill the principal recently.
