A school in Sweden has decided to ensure their children eat lunch and prevent any stray children from entering the school cafeteria in search of some wonderful food that is offered in the cafeteria. At the Lilja school in Vannas, students must give a fingerprint accompanied by a four digit code in order to receive a plate of school food. The plan prevents unauthorized people from eating free in the cafeteria.
The case of the fingerprint is now headed for a court decision. Is making children provide a fingerprint an infringement of their right to privacy?
Frankly, it is hard to believe any normal person would sneak into a school cafeteria in search of food. They would be better off at a homeless shelter.
