Here is another one for you?

Seen this on the internet too. Fox News(insider). Some Florida schools doing Optic fingerprinting(eye scans) of children without the parents permission. School said it was for the bus, knowing where the kids were. Said ,thought they had sent out the permission slip and got permission for it. But they didn't.

How would you feel?  What would you do?

I would march right up to the school and get the scan.  Then tell them to get permission forst next time.

  • I wouldn't be happy with having scans of my child done without my knowledge and permission, especially scans that could be stored somewhere in a computer. I don't understand why a school district would want to do that.

  • I would remove my child from the school and call a lawyer.

  • I honestly don't have a problem with it. And, I'm sure that legally they had to send out some kind of notice. Hell, I have to fill out a large permission slip just for my kid to eat food during an in-class party.

  • I would be pissed they didn't ask for permission. "they thought" I call BS they knew they didn't have permission and was using those kids as genie pigs

  • My child would NOT go back to that school. Now, my lawyer would, for sure.

  • I believe that it is the parent's right to decide if they want they children scanned (eye scan, finger printed etc.)
    I feel that the school should be brought up short if the violate that trust.
