Drudge is sure pushing this story about an iris scanning program
at an elementary school in the Freehold Borough School District.
Funding for the project, more than $369,000, was made possibly by a school safety grant through the National Institute of Justice, a research branch of the U.S. Department of Justice.
"The idea is to improve school safety for the children," said Phil Meara, superintendent, Freehold Borough School District, on Monday. "We had a swipe-card system that operated the doors, but the technology was obsolete."
Gosh, only $369,000 – every school in New Jersey will need to install the equipment.
