In Santa Barbera, California the school board has decided they will to take finger prints from children in two elementary schools to speed up cafeteria lines. The kids index finger prints will be scanned by a scanner for paying for their food. The scanner will show the child's name, students ID number, teachers name, and how much the student owes. They claim this will help speed up and keep better track of what the government owes them for the subsidized lunches that the school district serves. In other schools in the same district has the kids use six digit codes they enter into a keyboard instead of finger prints.
SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - A plan to fingerprint elementary school students when they buy lunch has some parents worrying that Big Brother has come to the cafeteria.

The Hope Elementary School District has notified parents that, beginning this month, students at Monte Vista, Vieja Valley and Hope elementary schools will press an index finger to a scanner before buying cafeteria food.

The scan will call up the student's name and student ID, teacher's name and how much the student owes, since some receive government assistance for food.
It is meant to speed up cafeteria lines.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

There are other ways to keep track of subsidies besides having to take the finger prints. Like six digit codes the kids can punch into keypads, or cards they can swipe when they receive their meal.

Is this the beginning of Big Brother or NWO starting to compile information from people at an early age?

So far it looks like it is just the reporters saying this is fingerprinting. Even an earlier article, only reports it is fingerprinting, but doesn't go into the technology used.

Without further information, I am fairly certain this is the same biometric scanning technology being implemented everywhere. If so, their actual fingerprints are not being collected. Just physical attributes of the finger itself.
