Parents have concerns over fingerprint system in schools

Nebraska News

Schools in Gretna, Nebraska, are using an electronic lunch program.

The program eliminates the need for cash by allowing kids to use their fingerprints to pay for their meals.

The school system says it prevents kids going without lunch by mis-entering their lunch card number.

But one Gretna parent doesn’t like it.

“You can have your personal identification taken. You can change your Social Security number. You can change a password. You can change your bank account number. You can’t change your fingerprint,” says cencerned parent, Justin Osterfoss.
