Now class, raise your hands if you think this is a bad idea:
Iris Scanning For New Jersey Grade School
When a parent arrives to pick up their child at one of three grade schools in the Freehold Borough School District, they'll need to look into a camera that will take a digital image of their iris. That photo will establish positive identification to gain entrance into the school.
I don't normally get uptight about government interference with our day-to-day lives, but this story raises the hair on the back of my neck. The US Department of Justice funding a program that will catalogue the iris images of any parent who wants to pick up their child from school is troubling, to say the very least. Why don't they take a finger print and DNA sample too? I mean this is for the safety of the children, right?
This is just one more reason to support school vouchers.
