Hello again everyone. I just submitted a story to digg.com regarding the use of fingerprinting in our nation's schools. I have also submitted a petition on the Primeminister's website to outlaw such systems (which is currently awaiting approval by his web team, I will post a link as soon as it is approved).
Please can you all read:http://www.digg.com/security/Information_Commissioner_Too_Late_to_stop_school_fingerprinting
Also, if you have a Digg username, please Digg the article so it gets more publicity and gets onto the Digg front page. If you don't have a Digg username, please sign up and create one. We simply cannot allow our children's civil liberties and human rights to be dissolved in such a manner.
The Information Commissioner's Office initially gave approval to the schemes and now they claim it is too late to outlaw them because so many schools are using them.
Whats makes this even worse is that schools are using government funds earmarked for IT facilities, to purchase these systems and the companies selling them are linked to companies providing the technologies in place at Guantanamo Bay.
Please act now.
