AUDIO: Yes or No to good behaviour wrist bands on primary kids?

A school in North Canterbury is holding off on its plans to make it’s pupils were micro-chipped behaviour bracelets. Swannanoa School had planned to use the wrist bands to track a student’s good behaviour using hand held scanners in the classroom connected to an on-line behaviour chart. But unsuspecting parents have kicked up a stink – last night the schools board of trustees chairman called my producer and said they’ll be consulting with parents over what he described as a “glorified star chart”. Chris Burns has 3 children at Swannanoa - Chris is with RadioLIVE's Marcus Lush.
