Three tax-funded schools in Florida allowed a profit-seeking firm onto the campuses to scan the eyes of children. These are the equivalent of fingerprints.
The schools did not notify parents. The scanning was done without parental authorization.
This technology is spreading. It is part of a nationwide program. More than one profit-seeking firm is trying to get into this market.
The school said it was all a big mistake. The lack of parental notification was an administrative error.
What was clearly not an error is the existence of federal funding to make sure that America’s children are tagged early, with their records put in a data base.
Most parents will go along with this. They go along with the idea of tax-funding. Why not go along with moire tax funding, “for the sake of the children’s safety”?
There are about 50 million children in tax-funded schools. Families have accepted the principle of letting state bureaucrats teach their children. Why not let these bureaucrats create a lifetime data base on them?
