 Militarization of our Schools

The Pentagon is taking over our poorer public schools. This is the reality for disadvantaged youth.

 

What we can do

Corporate/conservative alliances threaten Democracy . Progressives have an important role to play.

 Why does NNOMY matter?

Most are blind or indifferent to the problem.
A few strive to protect our democracy.

October Student Privacy (Opt Out) Actions:

Stop Military Recruiters from having easy access to our children!!!


Inform students about their right to "opt out" of their school giving their private information to MILITARY RECRUITERS!
Join Palisadians for Peace and CAMS as they distribute Student Privacy (Opt Out) forms to high school juniors and seniors.

OPTING-OUT

Section 9528 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 2001 (No Child Left Behind) mandates that school districts must provide the contact information (names, addresses and telephone numbers) of juniors and seniors to the military upon request unless an Opt Out form is signed and returned to the school.



Students must Opt Out every year.

LAUSD deadline: 
Opt Out forms must be returned by October 28, 2011.

 

 

Resources

Here are some recommended links available to better inform you about opt out strategies . This is a work in progress and NNOMY will be adding new documents as they are prepared and as policies change that effect enlistment. Check back periodically.
