A local organization is informing students that they can prevent that [students’ information being released to recruiters] from happening.
Thursday morning the Central Valley Counter Recruitment Coalition handed out flyers at several high schools including Fresno High School in Central Fresno.
Organizers say there is a form students can use to keep their contact information private from the military.
Scott Keys, CVCRC, says, “It’s really about helping them understand this, rights imbedded in the No Child Left Behind Act.”
Organizers say the act allows the information to be released. They say they want students to know about it and that they have the option to opt out.
They also say students are not required to take a military readiness test which can release their contact information.
