http://www.cnn.com/2002/EDUCATION/12/03/recruiting.high.schools.ap/index.html According to the above article, the US government has passed a bill that increases the education budget - in exchange for highschools providing contact information for all juniors and seniors to military recruiters. Lots of people are pissed about this, saying it's an invasion of students' privacy. However, I don't really see much of a difference between now and when I went to highschool (10 years ago). My school had JROTC, and recruiters were routinely on campus passing out info, etc. I even received a bunch of information in the mail shortly after I graduated - information I never requested, which leads me to believe my school had given recruiters my contact information. Your thoughts?
