U. S. Rep. Mike Honda Is Looking for NCLB Military Recruiter Stories to Buttress Proposed Legislation

Please circulate widely.

U.S. Representative Mike Honda has introduced legislation to change the No Child Left Behind provision regarding military access to student
directory information to require an OPT-IN, rather than opt-out process.

Rep. Honda is gathering stories of predatory practices, military targeting of students based on income, immigration status, race, and/or any
stories about people affected by the NCLB military recruiting provisions. Please send any information you have to Mariel Caballero:
