The President’s No Child Left Behind Act, approved by Congress, gives military recruiters access to school information that is not available to universities, retail sales companies, or potential employers of students. Under the law, schools have to give recruiters the names, addresses and telephone numbers of all juniors and seniors. Some schools in the Cape Girardeau area are sending forms to parents, allowing them to order the schools not to release that information. One parent has told the Cape Girardeau Southeast Missourian the federal law is a violation of a student’s privacy rights. One school superintendent has told the newspaper recruiters already have enough access to students when they go to the school for career days.
