Over on Tarique's blog it seems that his child's school has stretched the truth on the issue of obtaining parental consent before fingerprinting children, after they were put under pressure by Kirklees Council in Huddersfield. In his words the school has "blatantly lied to them" (the council).
Tarique has written to the council about the school's fabrication that they claim to have sought parental consent to take children's biometrics. Schools misleading local councils/LEA's, I would have thought, is a very serious matter. Lets see how Kirklees Council deals with this.
