NCLB Outrages

Leave My Child Alone!

DID YOU KNOW... that the infernal Leave No Child Behind Act has a sneaky Pete section requiring high schools to turn over student information to military recruiters?

1.
SIGN ON
as a citizen co-sponsor of US Representative Mike Honda's Student Privacy Protection Act.

2.
OPT OUT
your own child, or learn how the process works so you can tell your friends.

3.
ADOPT-A-SCHOOL-BOARD
by downloading the Working Assets AASB toolkit: everything you need to know to help your local schools do it right.

4.
ATTEND A HOUSE PARTY
or Meetup with Leave My Child Alone actions this fall.

5.
SEND
an email to friends and family telling them how to Opt Out.

YIKES. What do we do? Any way you look at it, this is a family privacy nightmare, another strong-arming of our local schools, and a creepy warm-up to the Draft. However, it's also a great excuse to get together in action again.

So whether you’re a parent, neighbor, student, or just another adamant American concerned about privacy rights, look for an action to your liking below, and JOIN US.
