Holy Crap! 

Los Angeles Times: Recruiting Student Privacy:
School districts across California have wrestled with a desire to protect student privacy while complying with a mandate authorized by the Bush administration's No Child Left Behind Act, the education law passed in 2001.

Under that mandate, recruiters are entitled to get the names, addresses and phone numbers of high school juniors and seniors, unless parents or students sign a form requesting that the data be withheld. Districts that don't comply stand to lose millions in federal funding.
Is this happening everywhere? I'm on the phone firstthing tomorrow morning to find out if this is happening here in my hometown! I have a son who is a high school junior. He's smart enough not to fall for recruitment propoganda, but I still don't want the school handing his records over to the military whores recruiters so that they can tailor their pitch.

Screw them. Let the people who supported this idiocy lose their children to Bush's pipedreams and leave my kid alone!
