Lancashire-based manufacturer Trutex is actually thinking about adding satellite tracking devices to school uniforms as a way to reduce truancy levels after an online survey indicated a good majority of parents are worried about their child's safety. The survey also found that 59 percent of the 800 adults who voted, expressed interest in uniforms with tracking devices. The tracking device originally came from English clothing company, Bladerunner, who revealed revealed last week that it would start selling stab-proof t-shirts, hooded tops and school blazers to parents worried about their children being attacked. Are these good solutions to the crime in our schools? Are these manufacturers going overboard and trying to make money out of fear? You be the judge.
