No Child Unrecruited

Here’s a glimpse into our federal government’s vision of what schools are for: Under the No Child Left Behind Act, secondary schools are required to give military recruiters the names, addresses and phone numbers of all the kids in the school. If a school fails to provide that information in response to the military’s request, it can lose all federal funding until it does.

Schools are supposed to notify parents about that provision and give them an opportunity to opt out. In case you missed that opportunity, you can find opt-out forms and additional information at the website of Leave My Child Alone.

..How can I comment?
