Careful consideration must be given this article. Parents and grandparents have added challenges on their hands now.
Initially, what might seem like a good idea to some parents, I TESTIFY IS NOT.
This is another way that government gets their hands in the privacy cookie jar of each parent and child. This is another reason for the nation to homeschool their children. This is another indication of the constitutional rights of schoolchildren and their parents slowly eroding. Then one day we might wake up and realize this precious and inspired constitution of ours must be pulled out of the weeds of wickedness surrounding it.
We must ask questions of school leaders, perhaps some once never thought of. We must remain vigilant. Vigilance however, requires one to be persistent in educational discoveries, such as the discovery April Serrano made below. Parents must act on those discoveries. It means parental involvement like never before to stem the tide of tyranny in our educational system. Parents can help save their children in this regard. It is possible, but, only we can do it.
Ladies and gentlemen, below is the ever vigilant warning voice of Michelle Malkin.

The school year may be over for most American students, but parents must remain as vigilant as ever when it comes to protecting their children’s privacy. Look no further than the shocking, invasive conduct of the Polk County, Fla., educational district last week. It’s a surveillance-state sign of the times.
Two days before their Memorial Day weekend break, kids from at least three different public schools — Bethune Academy (K-5), Davenport School of the Arts (K-5, middle and high school), and Daniel Jenkins Academy (6-12) — were subjected to iris scans without their parents’ knowledge or consent. The scans are essentially optical fingerprints, which the school intended to collect to create a database of bio-metric information for school bus security.
One mother took to Facebook to decry the outrageous breach after her son informed her of the unauthorized imaging. She posted a face-saving letter from Polk County Senior Director of Support Services Rob Davis notifying families only after the high-definition eye scans had been conducted.
