Schools fingerprint children for lunch program


So Mooch is collecting data on our kids. Why should we be surprised? A little loss of our privacy here, a little less freedom there, and pretty soon we have lost it all. Question, will all of this data of our kids be stored in the great new data center in Utah? Here we go:

NEW ALBANY, Ind. – The grumbling in New Albany cafeterias isn’t coming from students’ stomachs. It’s from parents.

The southern Indiana school district is one of the latest to deploy technology which “biometric identification to match a finger scan with a personal identification number,” WAVEreports.

According to a notification issued by the New Albany Floyd County school system, the technology is used to “eliminate pin numbers, eliminate misused pin numbers, maintain the privacy of students on subsidized food programs and speed up the amount of time in the lunch line.”

“I don’t need the school to store my children’s fingerprints. I don’t like that,” Mt. Tabor Elementary parent Mary Ann Halstead says.

A Pennsylvania school district is scanning students’ thumbprints, tracking all of their lunch purchases, and turning the data over to the federal government.

The Hazleton Area School District recently announced it would be providing free meals to all students, regardless of need.

The move comes after the federal government began incentivizing school districts to provide more meals to more students.

As The Citizens’ Voice reports:

While it would seem that providing all children with lunch would cost districts more, the pilot federal initiative turns that assumption on its ear. The initiative encourages school districts to move toward full participation by providing districts with reimbursements that will in fact absorb the cost of providing lunch to students of all income levels, whether they walk to school — or if a chauffeur drives them.

The Utah Data Center is completed and up and running, storing data as I click each letter on my keyboard,

    Not only are they destroying the children’s privacy, they are destroying the children’s expectation of privacy. It is a bad policy to require this.

      The Hazleton school district is totally overrun with settlements of all kinds of refugees. I am sure they are all on the dole, thus they all will get free meals. I doubt the parents even recognize this is not the American way.

    Good find! I am glad to see at least some of the parents are fighting this, once the fingerprints are taken you can be sure they will be sent to a database for life. Nothing like getting them before a person is old enough to consent.

      I agree. The children will become “subjects” Bet they match them with their Electronic Health Record once they are eating a government controlled diet.

    A little loss of our privacy here, a little less freedom there, and pretty soon we have lost it all. Well, of course this is true but as Biden will tell you … either you want to be a good Democrat, or you don’t. I’m waiting for a nitwit to suggest implanting transponders into our children’s crania. I am perplexed that parents aren’t really upset.

        I already know the answer from the last seven years, given the blatant “in your face” criminality that has been displayed — you, dear reader, are going to do exactly nothing about this revelation just as you haven’t before.

        I know what I’m going to do — go have a nice run and further turn my back on any desire to innovate or engage in entrepreneurial activity. Why would I, when all that does is fund this sort of outrageous crap?”

    My kid would bring a jelly sandwich from home for lunch since peanut butter could wipe out the entire student population. Hopefully parents will opt for privacy over a free lunch which we are all paying for.

      You are raising your child with the right attitude. Why strap on a vest when all you need to do is bring in peanut butter.
