    Oh, yes. It's the latest thing in domestic surveillance. Of course, only the schools that can afford them actually have them. Interestingly, the schools are given funds based upon the students' attendance and academic performance, so gang-ridden urban schools, where a student is more likely to get stabbed, are the least secure.

    Edit: In any event, even if you wanted to confirm students' identity via RFID records, nothing prevents them from ditching the things.
