Wow... Saw a bit on Fox about 3 schools in Florida taking scans of pupils retinas without even sending out informational alerts to the parents, let alone getting their ok to do so.

They claim it was done for 'security purposes, ; so they could id kids as they get on/off buses, but i have not heard of any school bus that has a Eye scanner on board.

So who here thinks this is ok?

As a parent, I would say no. I can see the benefit for security purposes, but I would much rather see adults ensuring that the right kid is on the right bus and people that are not supposed to be on the bus are not on the bus.
