The first link below is to the AFSC information about the No Child Left Behind Act's requirement that high schools provide military recruiters with the names, addresses, and phone numbers of all students (for recruitment purposes). Exempt are private, religious-affiliated schools that include pacifism in their organizational materials (e.g. Quaker schools). Parents in some areas are reporting harassing phone calls from military recruiters.
Parents and students have the right to opt out of this by notifying the school, in writing, that it is not to share their information with military recruiters.
The second link is an AFSC "Opt Out Tool Kit" to organize locally and let parents and students know about this provision of that law and how to opt out. Included is a sample letter, in English and Spanish, to send to your child's school.
Love & truth, agape & satyagraha, Tim
