    I agree. I already checked, my high school district is NOT doing this. That doesn't mean that teachers might not encourage kids NOT to speak to recruiters, but the district is not getting involved.

    Yup, federal funds are already tied to the number of students enrolled. Simply withhold a proportional amount for each optOut. That money gets realigned to the recruiters to cover the cost of alternative contact methods.

    Example: 1600 kids in myHS. myHS receives 165000 from Uncle. Each kid is worth 103.125 dollars in FedFund. 74 kids optOut. Ergo, 74 x 103.125= 7361.25 dollars to be reduced from the allocation of 165000.

    Bet the ACLU would hemorrhage itself within hours of the announcement of the plan. Any takers?

    Works for me. If a student does not wish to talk to a recruiter all he has to do is say no.
