Sounds like you got a basic problem with military recruiters recruiting high school students. What is that problem?
(1) ACCESS TO STUDENT RECRUITING INFORMATION- Notwithstanding section 444(a)(5)(B) of the General Education Provisions Act and except as provided in paragraph (2), each local educational agency receiving assistance under this Act shall provide, on a request made by military recruiters or an institution of higher education, access to secondary school students names, addresses, and telephone listings.So by this measure if my child were to attend a public school and I did not know about the option to opt out (many parents apparently do not as these stories are popping up more frequently), by default their names are to be given to the government for recruiting purposes. The fact that those that supposedly advocate smaller limited government have no problem with this is disconcerting. Now I realize Republicans could care less for conservative principles anymore (as evidenced by this Act in general), but in effect what you are advocating is children as young as 14 or 15 would be receiving unsolicited mail from recruiters simply by attending school.
(2) CONSENT- A secondary school student or the parent of the student may request that the student's name, address, and telephone listing described in paragraph (1) not be released without prior written parental consent, and the local educational agency or private school shall notify parents of the option to make a request and shall comply with any request.
(3) SAME ACCESS TO STUDENTS- Each local educational agency receiving assistance under this Act shall provide military recruiters the same access to secondary school students as is provided generally to post secondary educational institutions or to prospective employers of those students.
Why not take it a step further and require if they attend public school they should have to serve two years right out of high school. That's conservative....
