Big Teacher is Watching You

Iris Scanning For New Jersey Grade School [Yahoo News]

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.

Funding for the project, more than $369,000, was made possibly by a school safety grant through the National Institute of Justice, a research branch of the U.S. Department of Justice.

Great. So now our tax dollars for justice are being spent on education as well. Tell me, how much is the Department of Education going to pay to teach public school children how to properly pronounce "biometric"?

This doesn't smack of fascism at all. I mean, Hitler only used punchcards from IBM to keep the ghettos in order. I'm sorry, what ever happened to this little thing called responsibility?
