I just found some great information and a useful online tool that makes it easy to "opt out" children from the list high schools are required to release to military recruiters. Just go to LeaveMyChildAlone.org. Not only can you get your own kids off the list, you can help change the law that lets military recruiters prey on our minor children without the parents' explict permission. Hope you find it useful! And tell other people you know about LeaveMyChildAlone.org!
Leave my child alone!
No Child Left Behind, public high schools must hand over personal information about students -- including minors -- to local military recruiters. The purpose of this invasion of family privacy is to allow minor students to be recruited at home by telephone calls, mail and personal visits. If a school does not comply, it risks losing vital federal education funds. The good news is, parents can get their kids off this list by submitting a request in writing to their school district superintendent.
