Should military recruiters be able to access students’ personal contact information on demand, as the current No Child Left Behind Act stipulates?
And should schools that refuse to turn over that information be cut off from federal funding, also part of the law?
Those questions will be addressed during a panel discussion titled “High School Military Recruitment: Patriotism or Invasion of Privacy” from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Monday at the Flint Public Library, 1026 E. Kearsley St.
The forum, sponsored by the Genesee County Bar Association, will be moderated by Mt. Morris District Court Magistrate Roberta Wray, a former television news reporter.
Panelists will include attorney Glenn Simmington, a board member of the Greater Flint American Civil Liberties Union; attorney K.C. Baran, a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point; Nancy Galassini, a counselor at Carman-Ainsworth High School; and Chris James, principal of the Central Commencement Academy.
Refreshments will be served. Details: (810) 232-6000 [or pjanczewski at flintjournal.com]
