At what point will they be asked to inform upon their parents?
This rather frightening message came through on a chat group of which I am a member.
Yesterday evening my daughter came home from school with an information sheet. The Headteacher and the School Governors are to implement a new library system. Instead of the usual ticket system, all the children are to be electronically finger printed. Though only one finger print is necessary, they aregoing to take two, just incase ;) It's to stop students using each others cards.
The Librarian states that he is, 'committed to complying with the data protection act.'
Fingerprinting schoolchildren in order that they can use the library!
