1984 - Big Brother starts the control process early with school children
- With bi-partisan funding by the Federal Government, Big Brother is scanning and microchipping school children around the nation.
- Don't worry, it for your own good you know.
- And the American Sheeple meekly accept their fate.
According to FoxCarolina.com, schools in the Anderson District 5 region in South Carolina are undergoing a pilot program for finger-scanners that get “an entire grade through the lunch line in just 10 minutes.”
The report eerily goes on to say that the system “reads the finger like a barcode and turns it into a number,” but says that no fingerprints will be stored in a database.
The technology’s implementation has angered at least one parent, Gabrielle Murdock, who believes the new system is a “breach of her son’s rights.” Reportedly, her son was sick the day the notes were sent out informing parents of the privacy-intruding scanners.
Texas Students Treated Like Cattle with Mandatory RFID Tags
Students and parents at two San Antonio schools are in revolt over a program that forces kids to wear RFID tracking name tags which are used to pinpoint their location on campus as well as outside school premises.
Murdock told the Fox affiliate that she’s “upset there was no permission needed for the students to begin participation.” “Murdock said this is the kind of program that should be opt-in versus opt-out,” reported Fox Carolina.
Increasingly, we are seeing a growing number of biometric identification programs being subtly rolled out in several public schools across America.
Recently, we reported on a group of San Antonio students who revolted against a program forcing children to wear RFID tags that would track them both on and off campus, under the guise of curbing tardiness and truancy. If successfully implemented, the school would receive $2 million dollars in state funding.
Earlier this month it was reported that Maryland schools are forcing children to scan their palms as a substitute for paying with cash. According to the Baltimore Sun, about 20 percent of parents declined to participate in the program.
Instead of paying for their lunches with crumpled dollar bills and loose change, students in Carroll County schools are having their palms scanned in a new check-out system — raising concerns from some parents that their children’s privacy is being violated.
The county is one of the first localities in Maryland to use the PalmSecure system, in which children from kindergarten to 12th grade place their hands above an infrared scanner. It identifies unique palm and vein patterns, and converts the image into an encrypted numeric algorithm that records a sale.
Tracking your kids, a money maker?
It's a growing market for the nation's 20 billion dollar security industry, paid for by federal dollars.
