Manatee, FL: School Board refuses to distribute NCLB opt-out forms


A letter in the Herald Tribune:

Most Manatee County School Board members, under the advocacy of Superintendent Roger Dearing, are unwilling to distribute “Opt Out From the Military Recruiters” forms to students when high schools open on Monday.

Coalition of Concerned Patriots members have appeared monthly for three years at meetings, pointing out the need for making opt-out forms available to students.

Why? The No Child Left Behind Act requires that the names, addresses and phone numbers of all high school students be turned over to military recruiters, unless their parents/guardians tell schools, in writing, that they’re opting out. Collier, Lee and Pinellas counties distribute opt-out forms. Manatee and Sarasota counties continue to drag their feet.

Our coalition invites people to become involved so students’ personal information is not automatically given to the military. This will happen unless an opt-out form is submitted in writing to the appropriate high school principal by Sept. 15.

A sample letter is at under “Hot topics” but it is not a form that can be downloaded and completed. Dearing and a School Board majority made it clear at the board’s meeting Thursday that no form will be distributed when schools open.

For many students badgered by recruiters, this could be a life and death issue if they’re deployed for war. Without the opt-out form, consequences may be dire. It’s time for the Manatee County School Board to distribute the forms. Let Dearing and the School Board know. Call 708-8770!

    I was raised in an alcoholic house – the “old” stereotype was alive and well and applied to excuse why my parent was NOT a souse – after all he had a job, a family, a household, etc. It’s no surprise that I set out boozing in high school and in all likelihood felt my first blackout when I was a junior. Since drunkenness was typical in my parent’s home, I reckoned the single thing wrong with it was that I was not of legal age to get alcohol. I went to college on a full scholarship and dismissed out because my parents were “trying to control me”. I got married and had two children. I got a job as a computer programmer and life was good. I loved my work – there are LOTS of high functioning alcoholics in the IT field so I felt right at home. I used to kid some about how we designed our greatest programmes on cocktail napkins during happy hour after job hours. I nevertheless didn’t imagine I had a problem because I didn’t booze each day … but when I did imbibe … I couldn’t anticipate how long I would stop at the ginmill or how many drinks I would consume. I would have every last intention of stopping off for 1 drink and not get home until the saloon closed. Needless to tell the spousal relationship suffered. My escapades were beginning to catch up with me and my hubby wanted to move nearer to his parents … GREAT IDEA!! THAT will be the answer! I will move to a different city and begin OVER … no more boozing like this. Well … the geographical “cure” as we call it DIDNT work. I got a different programming job complete with different drinking colleagues. The cycle started to iterate – only worse this time. My kids were three
