LAUSD to use fingerprint scans for school lunches
from Daily News
Los Angeles Unified officials hope a new plan allowing students to purchase school meals with a simple press of a finger will save money, speed up long cafeteria lines and reduce the headaches caused by forgotten lunch money. But the controversial finger scan ID system has faced opposition from parents and civil liberties groups worried about student privacy. LAUSD officials said the fingerprint program will be one of several options given to all schools, which over the next 18 months will switch to cashless food sale systems.
