I know I can be a little obsessed with becoming an Orwellian nation but this proves my point that I am not obsessed or crazy.
Polk County, Florida schools allowed official from Stanley Convergent Security Solutions to take iris scans of students between May 20 and 22nd.
The scan, EyeSwipe, are essentially optical fingerprints, which the school intended to collect to create a database of biometric information for school-bus security, much like the technology used in the 2002 Tom Cruise movie Minority Report.
The kicker to this story is that parents where not informed until after the scans were conducted. A letter was sent home describing EyeSqipe as a safe and noninvasive way to collect student data and keep track of students boarding buses.
