Finger printing in schools just gets hotter…

A while back I mentioned that the primary school my children are attending was planning to introduce fingerprinting for school registration. I believe I’ve managed to get that stopped now, however this is not the case for many parents who are currently discovering that without their knowledge or consent their child’s biometrics have been taken by the school and stored for such trivial uses as borrowing a library book.

The companies involved in this technology keep stating there is no problem and parents have never objected…So thankfully a new web site has been launched which is now clearly stating for the record that this is clearly not the case.

Please check the web site out, and make your voice heard….Leave Them Kids Alone
