Yikes! Good thing technology wasn't this advanced when I was in school. Lawmakers in Prince George's County in Maryland are proposing that truant students who skip school be equipped with GPS tracking devices to combat the increasing number of school skippers. The HB 506 bill is currently pending on the floor of the Maryland House of Delegates.
What ever happened to skipping class and getting your friend to write you a note? Serious or not, I don't think the solution is installing an electronic tracking microchip in teenagers.
