PJC STUDENT PRIVACY BUSD RESOLUTION NO. 11-10 09222010 FINAL.pdf
BUSD (Berkeley) has just passed a sister resolution to the OUSD Resolution protecting students form the JAMRS database that we passed last year. This was after a 2 year campaign that paved the way for Oakland to pass our resolution. Now it has gained momentum and sister districts seem very willing to follow suit.
SFUSD (San Francisco) will also vote on a JAMRS resolution next week so we are slowly making the BAY-Area an unwelcoming zone to JAMRS and the ways it invades young people's privacy to make them easier to recruit.
Please consider working with your local board of ed to pass a similar resolution. When framed as a student privacy issue it seems uncontroversial and yet it is a very practical way to undercut aggressive recruitment in public schools.
