Students!! Opt Out!!

Under the No Child Left Behind Act, if you attend a public high school, your school system is required to turn over your private information to the US military unless you opt out.

By printing out the form, having it signed by a parent or guardian and taking it to your school principal or administrator, you will make sure that military recruiters are not given your private information that they have no right to receive.

Find out more about Anti-Flag's campaign to stop military recruiters from being allowed open season on high school campuses across the U.S.

What the hell does that have to do with leaving no child left behind? I don't get it? I thought the NCLBA was for education... Gotta love the fine print!

Unfortunately, like most of the bureaucratic mumbo-jumbo coming from the current administration, this initiative has little to do with education and much more to do with enforcement of ideology.

Thanks for that info! I posted it on the Green Day forum. Most of those kids love Anti-Flag, so maybe they'll listen.
