Make the Bastards Work For It

One of the most nefarious clauses of the odious No Child Left Behind act requires that if your child is in the public school system, your private information must be turned over to recruiters for the purpose of luring him or her into a stint as cannon fodder for the military industrial complex. That is, unless you officially opt out.

The Military Free Zone supplies an Opt Out form that you can download as a PDF and fill out to provide to your Principal or school administrator, requesting that your name, address and telephone number not be released to armed forces, military recruiters or military schools.

Just Say No to the literal telemarketers from hell.
