    WITH GOVERNMENT DOLLARS… come government strings. The NCLB Act requires schools receiving federal money to provide military recruiters a list of their students names, phone numbers, and addresses. Private schools are exempt. Some parents are whining about this:

    Laurie Sellick, the mother of a senior at Firestone High School in Akron, is uncomfortable with the schools’ giving anyone — especially the military — easy access to her son. She is equally troubled that students in private schools are off limits.

    “I believe the (law) should be for all students, across all racial and socioeconomic barriers. If you do it for one, you have to do it for all,” she said.

    Tough! I’ve got nothing against the military but let them get their spam addresses like any other “business”. I’ll do whatever I can to protect my children’s privacy. Besides, the law lets parents of public-schoolers opt out if they choose.
