Hidden Clause in No Child Left Behind Act Lets Parents Opt-Out

School districts around the US are struggling to comply with the No Child Left Behind Act. The Act threatens to cut federal funds if they fail to provide military recruiters with phone numbers and other personal information about students. But a little known clause gives parents and students the right to opt out of the military listing. Last night in Watsonville, California, the Pajaro Valley School Board voted 4-3 to improve the notification process to parents that their child's information will be handed over to recruiters. FSRN's Vinny Lombardo has more.

Re: Hidden Clause in No Child Left Behind Act Lets Parents Opt-Out

It should be called "No Child's Behind Left" as Greg Palast suggested.

When more self-replicating biological automatic weapons (soldiers) are needed for the current oil war, anti abortion laws are increased and even lack of access to contraception (no fertilized egg=no fetus)

This proves the life of the fetus isnt the issue. The issue is the appropriation of womens uteruses for the manufacture of soldiers who are killed by wars started and funded by MEN (and insanely supported by a minority of brainwashed patriarchal women)

According to the so called pro-"lifers" if a women has an abortion she is "killing her baby"
but if she gives birth and if her 18 year old ex fetus is killed by foreign MEN, she is given a flag and is honored.

Male-supremacist conservatives want the power of God to determine when persons gets born, the right to kill them (death penalty) and the right to allow them to get killed in war.

They want godlike power over live and death. They even oppose a person's right to die, such as when suffering from a termnal disease.

If all MOTHERS had reprodictive rights, the entire economic system would be thrown into chaos without the fetal assembly line running full speed.

If women all over the world controled their reproduction the supply of consumer/breeder/soldier/worker units would be disrupted and the global economy of ecocide would collapse.
