Biometrics in schools spread to Europe

Two Belgium schools introduce biometric technology into the classroom admist privacy fears.

"The Commission for the Protection of Privacy complained that none of the schools consulted them before installing fingerprint recognition systems."

This is one of the first instances of this technology appearing on the European mainland and it seems by the report the technology is installed without co-operation of parents and consultation with privacy groups - the usual story - much as it is over here.
