Code numbers for UAE students planned

The National Transport Authority (NTA) is considering implementing a system of code numbers for school students at the UAE level.

According to a report in Al Ittihad, under the new system each student will have a card with a special number, comprising personal data, which will help track students? movement into and out of the school bus.

The card will comprise details of students, their parents and educational institutions, which will be linked to the central system. The aim is to enhance safety and security of school students.
