Wisconsin school board introduces bill banning collection of biometric data
Representative Tom Larson (R-Colfax) has introduced a bill banning the collection and use of student biometric data, including blood pressure, without parent or guardian consent.
At present, there are no Wisconsin school districts that use biometric technology, and Larson’s bill is the first bit of Wisconsin legislature regarding the collection or usage of biometric data. A report from the Chippewa Herald suggest that the bill, as Larson sees it, is more about preventing future problems than anything else.
“I believe the legislature owes it to students and their families to be proactive and address the issue of biometric data before it can become a problem,” says Larson.
