Thanks to No Child Left Behind, Military Recruiters Swoop into Schoolsnew

NCLB forces high schools that receive federal funding to provide upperclassmen's contact information to the Armed Forces -- unless a parent specifically has opted out. The law also requires that military recruiters be given the same access to public schools afforded to college recruiters and potential employers. In response, some school districts limited the access of all recruiters to high schools, but others rolled out the camouflage carpet.
