H.R. 392, the Student Privacy Protection Act of 2009, by Rep. Honda (D-CA) would amend NCLB so that a parent must provide written consent for the release of student directory information to military recruiters instead of the current requirement that school districts provide student directory information to military recruiters unless the parent or the student affirmatively opts out of the release of such information. See if your Representative is a cosponsor of H.R. 392. http://www.nea.org/home/54447.htm

Did you know that the No Child Left Behind Act requires your child’s high school to divulge his or her personal information to military recruiters, without your consent? The Student Privacy and Protection Act will change this military recruiting practice from an “opt-out” to an “opt-in” program. Recruiting efforts should honor the privacy rights of our children and their families. http://SRKcampaign.org

I support The Student Privacy Protection Act because my child is a MINOR & allowing ANTONE access to his personal information is criminal! Why should ANY government have immediate, non-consent of private information of a minor? This is preposterous! The military has abundant ways to recruit rather than infiltrating our public schools!

I support The Student Privacy Protection Act because...I feel it is the families decision on college vs military. A parent knows their child better then a military recruiter, let us help our children decide what is best for their life and future. I am a single mom of three, my oldest is 17 and is a great student and athlete. I do struggle monthly to pay the bills which my children see. The recruiter told my son, he could help our his mom not struggle, join the military so I don't have to worry about college. That is not for a recruiter to say, not for someone that does not no my son or my family to make him feel guilty about his education! I will do what it takes to make my son realize college is the right path and that my voice as his parent is stronger then any recruiter make him feel guilty. That is not okay, that is dirty and tricky tactics, kind of in the line of fraud. Concerned mom.

I support The Student Privacy Protection Act because...I believe ROTC or military recruitment programs overstep their bounds by preying on a child's delicate sensibilities causing them to make serious life decisions involving the safety of their own life based on pressure and predatory recruitment tactics from an adult.

I support The Student Privacy Protection Act because...children are highly impressionable and do not understand the risks associated with military service. They should not be targeted by recruiters. I have two sons, both of whom were aggressively pursued by recruiters.

I support The Student Privacy Protection Act because military recruitment efforts should honor the privacy of our families and kids. Schools should obtain parental consent before private student data is released to military recruiters. HR392 would help ensure the privacy rights of students are respected by making sure such consent is granted before data is released.

I oppose The Student Privacy Protection Act because... if the child is under age the parents have to give approval for the student to join therefore the law is not needed.

I oppose The Student Privacy Protection Act because the military is an excellent opportunity for Millions of american kids that would be lost without the training and personal development that the military gives them. The organization that are supposedly for this act are also suppose to be helping our youth, but their track record is lower performance and hindering our youth to achieve dubious political power.

I oppose The Student Privacy Protection Act because... If the goal of the NEA is to make it harder for the military to gain access to and recruit quality high school graduates, this is a very bad bill. Why would the NEA want to block access to academic records in the name of privacy, when the Obamacare law they supported allows release to a multitude of federal, state and local government agencies of the very same student's MEDICAL records?

I oppose The Student Privacy Protection Act. Currently, parents have the option to direct the schools to not release their child's information to military recruiters. To reverse this policy, during these harsh economic times, would deny potential opportunities to young men and women who could use military service to great advantage; gaining skills and real world experience that translates to real job skills for employers.

I oppose H.R. 392: Student Privacy Protection Act of 2009 because... the only time a student should be able to oped out is when they do not have any federal student loan or federal grant. If you're getting any federal support any military service should be able to contact you. There should be an obligation to have the opportunity to serve the country who supported you to attend the school of your choice.
