This one is from the National Association of School Boards. And here is another take from Salon.com. A little known section of NCLB allows army recruiters to visit high school students without parents’ permission. Parents can opt out but most are unaware of this little known fact and do not. A district in central New York allows parents to opt in, that is if they want their teenager visited they can say yes, otherwise no-go. "...This year, 71 parents signed the opt-in form, compared with 60 last year and 48 the year before. The high school has an enrollment of 1,600... " They are in trouble with the law, and they are the only district in that category.
It sets one to wondering why the all-volunteer army needs to use such tactics, which even include visiting students at home without calling and without permission. It all gets curiouser and curiouser.
