"Cover Story" piece on the controversial law that requires all Maine school employees, including teachers, to be fingerprinted for criminal background checks.

Bernard Huebner, a teacher in the Skowhegan area, says the problem with the increasing use of fingerprinting for job applicants is that there is no longer a presumption of innocence.
