It’s nice to know that Bush and Company are still able to make use out of that under-funded No Child Left Behind Act. Thanks to the following sneaky Pete clause, schools are legally required to fork over secondary school level students personal information to U.S. military recruiters without parents consent.
Sowwy there’s no money for books folks, but we’re gonna need you to go ahead and send us over those names and addresses ASAP. Hey, don't blame us -- it's the law. Thanks. -U.S. Army
