Big Brother Arrives In Public Schools - Biometric Scanners Track Students Every Move

Tyler Durden's picture

The world is disintegrating on every front - politically, environmentally, morally - and for the next generation, the future does not look promising. As we detailed previously, those coming of age today will face some of the greatest obstacles ever encountered by young people.  

They will find themselves overtaxed and struggling to find worthwhile employment in a debt-ridden economy on the brink of implosion. They will be the subjects of a military empire constantly waging war against shadowy enemies and on guard against domestic acts of terrorism, blowback against military occupations in foreign lands. And they will find government agents armed to the teeth ready and able to lock down the country at a moment’s notice. As such, they will find themselves forced to march in lockstep with a government that no longer exists to serve the people but which demands they be obedient slaves or suffer the consequences. And perhaps most crucially, their privacy will be eviscerated by the surveillance state.

It appears that day is drawing closer as's Joseph Jankowski details, all over the United States, school districts have been implementing biometric identification technology for the purpose of allowing students to purchase lunch with no cash or card, and to track them getting on and off the school bus.

This technology has many worried that school districts are going to far with collecting personal information on students and are putting their privacy at risk.


In Illinois, the Geneva Unit District 304 has recently installed a biometric scanner in their cafeterias that will take student’s thumbprints for lunch purchases.


The biometric scanner, made by PushCoin Inc, will allow parents to closely monitor their children’s lunch accounts through email updates. Also, PushCoin’s CEO, Anna Lisznianski contends the scanners can help school officials use lunch time more efficiently, reports EAG news.


Officials in several area school districts have said they plan on implementing similar technology in the coming months and years.


“I will tell you that many of the kids aren’t very good about keeping track of their ID cards,” District 95 board President Doug Goldberg told the Daily Herald. “And so moving to biometrics was felt to be sort of the next generation of that individual, unique ID. We’ll record their thumbprints, there will be thumbprint readers at all the cash registers, and they’ll simply come by and — bang — hit their thumbprint. It makes it faster and, also, there’s a lot less opportunity for any kind of misuse or fraud when they’re using biometrics.”


Ed Yohnka, spokesman for the ACLU-Chicago, says that lunch line thumb scanners and other biometric data collection in schools sends the wrong message to students about protecting their privacy.


“I think it undermines the notion of really thinking about the importance of your biometrics as a matter of privacy,” Yohnka said. “I think in this age, when so much is available and so much is accessible online about us and there is all this information that floats out there, to begin to include in this one’s biometrics, it really does raise some legitimate concerns.”


Local law enforcement officials, for example, could subpoena fingerprints from a vendor like PushCoin to track down student criminals, Yohnka said.


University of Washington psychology professor Laura Kastner shares the same privacy concerns.


“At some point, Big Brother is going to have a lot of information on us and where is that going to go?” Kastner told the Daily Herald. “And that’s just for parents to consider. But from a kid point of view, they have no idea what they’re giving up and, once again, the slippery slope in what’s called habituation.”


“We’re getting so used to giving up data about ourselves,” Kastner said.


Along with privacy risks, this technology could be aiding in the acceptance of the obvious war on cash that is being waged globally.


With an entire generation of young people being acclimated to accept biometric identification technology, there is no telling no how far reaching this technology will go in the future and what it will collect.

As we concluded previously, with the help of automated eyes and ears, a growing arsenal of high-tech software, hardware and techniques, government propaganda urging Americans to turn into spies and snitches, as well as social media and behavior sensing software, government agents are spinning a sticky spider-web of threat assessments, behavioral sensing warnings, flagged “words,” and “suspicious” activity reports aimed at snaring potential enemies of the state.

It’s the American police state’s take on the dystopian terrors foreshadowed by George Orwell, Aldous Huxley and Phillip K. Dick all rolled up into one oppressive pre-crime and pre-thought crime package.

What’s more, the technocrats who run the surveillance state don’t even have to break a sweat while monitoring what you say, what you read, what you write, where you go, how much you spend, whom you support, and with whom you communicate. Computers now do the tedious work of trolling social media, the internet, text messages and phone calls for potentially anti-government remarks—all of which is carefully recorded, documented, and stored to be used against you someday at a time and place of the government’s choosing.

Billy, do you think we will feel safer when Trump builds his wall? Or will we suddenly discover it is more for keeping us in....for our own good of course!

They make it so damned EASY for us to feel safe. The road to hell is paved with convenience.

Billy the Poet's picture

It's not so much the wall but the fact that the most "convenient" way to identify and track masses of immigrants would be to issue them bio metric ID cards. The UN is already providing bio metric IDs to refugees in some nations.

I believe that the self inflicted immigration crises striking the US and Europe will be used to roll out such IDs not only to the immigrants but also to the citizenry in order to be able to distinguish them from immigrants.  Folks are coming to fear the immigrants being pushed on them to such a degree that many will likely embrace a bio metric ID for one and all as a sign of status and means of protection.

How to make a fake fingerprint:

From 2005.  Biometrics suck.   If somebody steals your password you can just set a new one.   If somebody duplicates your fingerprint then your are screwed forever.

My favorite Manifesto passage:


6. Almost everyone will agree that we live in a deeply troubled society. One of the most widespread manifestations of the craziness of our world is leftism, so a discussion of the psychology of leftism can serve as an introduction to the discussion of the problems of modern society in general.

7. But what is leftism? During the first half of the 20th century leftism could have been practically identified with socialism. Today the movement is fragmented and it is not clear who can properly be called a leftist. When we speak of leftists in this article we have in mind mainly socialists, collectivists, “politically correct” types, feminists, gay and disability activists, animal rights activists and the like. But not everyone who is associated with one of these movements is a leftist. What we are trying to get at in discussing leftism is not so much movement or an ideology as a psychological type, or rather a collection of related types. Thus, what we mean by “leftism” will emerge more clearly in the course of our discussion of leftist psychology. (Also, see paragraphs 227-230.)

8. Even so, our conception of leftism will remain a good deal less clear than we would wish, but there doesn’t seem to be any remedy for this. All we are trying to do here is indicate in a rough and approximate way the two psychological tendencies that we believe are the main driving force of modern leftism. We by no means claim to be telling the WHOLE truth about leftist psychology. Also, our discussion is meant to apply to modern leftism only. We leave open the question of the extent to which our discussion could be applied to the leftists of the 19th and early 20th centuries.

9. The two psychological tendencies that underlie modern leftism we call “feelings of inferiority” and “oversocialization.” Feelings of inferiority are characteristic of modern leftism as a whole, while oversocialization is characteristic only of a certain segment of modern leftism; but this segment is highly influential.

I do not subscribe to his solutional methodology, although short of action, many in our circle seem  to agree with his philosophy.

Pull your kid out and homeschool if that is the case.  There really is no good excuse. Otherwise, find a school district that is like going in a time machine to 30+ years ago.  They're hard to find but they're out there and it's going to be a rural district, just as a FYI.

The Justice Department's move to make girls share rest rooms and locker rooms with boys (and visa versa) based on "gender identity" or the mere assertion that one feels like a member of the opposite sex should have sane individuals pulling their kids out of public school already.

For those who consider this to be a non-issue consider the case of "Lila" Perry (picture below), an eighteen year old man who tried to gain legal access to the girl's rest rooms at his high school. If that one isn't good enough for you I've got more.

Oldwood's picture

Maybe open carry is a solution? A much more polite society....

Billy the Poet's picture

That's just the problem -- "Lila" is going to be open carrying his piece in the girl's rest room.

So you want grown intersex men, full beards and all, to be forced to use only the women's room?!

Just because their birth certificates say "female" even though they look like men when not naked. It's more common than you think because you don't notice these men today - about one in 1000 of the male population. But you sure will notice them when you force them into the women's room. If you don't believe me then ask anyone who has worked in HR many years whether they ever came across an intersex person.

For that is what your proposed policy implies of bathroom based on birth certificates. It implies forcing putative men into the women's room instead of letting people choose to go where there are least likely to cause trouble.

This issue is not nearly as simple as the religous nuts would have everyone believe. Dimwits never consider unintended consequences.

So you want grown intersex men, full beards and all, to be forced to use only the women's room?!

Yes! I believe that every woman has a right to use women's rest rooms and locker rooms regardless of her appearance. Why would you deny such a woman or any woman her gender rights?


Just because their birth certificates say "female" even though they look like men when not naked.

So little Johnny is changing down at the public pool and in comes this big, fat redneck with a beard who drops his pants and there's nothing between the guy's legs but a hairy slash. Little Johnny goes running into the night and is never seen again because his gender rights and his innocence have been violated.


For that is what your proposed policy implies of bathroom based on birth certificates.

The occupancy of gender segregated rest rooms and locker rooms should be determined by whether an individual is a male or female. It's a matter of biology not just a piece of paper.


It implies forcing putative men into the women's room instead of letting people choose to go where there are least likely to cause trouble.

The Justice Department's policy puts men and boys at risk of false accusations of rape from the unstable types of individuals who engage in transgender behavior.

Pushcoin charges around 1% -1.5% for all transactions. Consider that school lunch costs have almost doubled under Obama and kids are now forced to buy food they don't eat - this is a win-win for the politicans to take a little more money from the student's parents.

So, anyways, when the swine flu was going to kill us all and .gov (under Obama was going to save us all from I gave squire explicit instructions...if they come at you with a needle or nose have my permission to stab them in the eye with a pencil and flee home and we will take care of the rest.

I had already informed the government "schooling system" in writing that we, as parents (not them) would decide when something was a "pandemic" and a concern to our health, not them.

So...the swine flu went away. Replaced by ebola at some point which was killed off miraculously by an Ebola Czar appointment and paper & phone

Fortunately for young squire he never had to make the forced choice between his blood parents and the vaporous .gov incompetencies and its equally fortunate for the school nurse who was told to "just do her job" that the order never came.

This should be remembered, for future reference ;-)

While the CDC... who's here to help us.. was declaring the horrors of "incurable" ebola, they already knew colloidal silver could neutralize ebola and all the hemorrhagic viruses because the DOD Threat Assessment Agency had done the studies. That's why NASA/Russian Space program use silver everywhere; it's the best antibiotic/antiviral/antifungal on earth in my opinion...and one of the last things Big Pharma wants the Sheeple to understand. The World Health Org... also here to help us... blocked multiple shipments of CS to Africa because the Africans had done their homework and actually wanted to heal the sick. Baxter International was caught red handed putting a deadly combination of live viruses in thousands of "vaccines" sent to eighteen European countries. One guy, ONE scientist, actually tested the "vaccine" and discovered it was lethal; had the population been injected with this stuff there would have been a pandemic. No reports here and few in Europe but a sufficient number of medical practitioners were aware and Baxter had to sell it's "vaccine" business to Pfizer to rebrand it. They are definitely trying to kill us and those "viruses" will be delivered; through 'vaccines' or GMO or some other nightmarish plan. The story on Baxter in Europe was the 'vaccine' was 'contaminated'. However, anyone who knows anything about the process knows you couldn't turn a vaccine into a combination of live viruses even if you were making it in your garage. This was very deliberate. Be aware.
