Did you know that under a little known provision of No Child Left Behind, public high schools must hand over personal information about students - including minors - to local military recruiters? It's an invasion of family privacy. The good news is parents can get their children off this list by submitting a request in writing to their school district superintentent or go to www.leavemychildalone.org. Not only can you get your own children off the list but also help change the law that lets military recruiters prey on minor children without the parents' permission.
