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.
