In NYC, New Rules for High School Military Recruiting

According to the NY Times, the NYC DOE announced Monday night that schools will be required to provide military  opt-out  forms to ninth- and 10th-grade students and develop a plan to monitor on-campus recruiting by the armed forces, including a requirement that principals appoint a staff member to oversee a military recruiting plan for each school.

These and other new guidelines have come after civil liberties groups questioned and criticized a decision last fall to give military recruiters access to a central database of students’ names, addresses and phone numbers (instead of recruiters going school to school).
