Dear Wisconsin Republicans, "Don't believe a word of those silly things you've heard, they're just rumors"

And guess who's been fanning the flames of this silliness?

Common Core panel wants limits on school use of fingerprints, retinal scans. (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 12/12/2013)

Do dooby do dooby sha la la la loo. Democrats dismissed many of the recommendations as silly. 

Rep. Sondy Pope (D-Cross Plains) said no districts are performing retinal scans, [at least not in the name of Common Core standards] and that putting restrictions on taking biometric information could inhibit the ability of schools to monitor the health of special-needs students or record the temperature of a sick child.
