No Child Left Unrecruited

Just got this from my neighborhood association DL:

Two of my Lawrence High students-Alexia Welch and Sarah Ybarra-finished a 26-minute documentary, entitled "No Child Left Unrecruited." It's a remarkable film, one that seeks to bring attention to the little known provision of the No Child Left Behind Act that entitles the military access to public school students' personal information or risk losing federal funding. Additionally, the film examines how being included in the student directory and/or opting in or opting out of being contacted by the military has many different consequences, many of which are unclear under current local school policy. The students have interviewed principals, teachers, students, parents, school district superintendent Randy Weseman, Kansas Congressman Dennis Moore, and a local military recruiter. Premiere:
