BioGuard fingerprinting booted out

If you have read my earlier posts you may have read my rants on how my kids primary school was attempting to implement fingerprinting for school registration. Finally after a whole year and some money they eventually got it that the idea was just plain dumb….how they ever expected to integrate such a system such that they had a reliable and fault tolerant registration system at a reasonable price was beyond me and any else who had any reasonable amount of IT experience.

So whilst I’m pleased I’m just hoping that no other school gets approached by Bio Guard or its resellers in the UK. It also made me chuckle today as their web site hinted that finger prints are globally unique something we now know to be false.
