What are the recent changes made by Congress concerning military recruitment of high school students?

Congress has passed two major pieces of legislation that generally require local educational agencies (LEAs) receiving assistance under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) [1] to give military recruiters the same access to secondary school students as they provide to postsecondary institutions or to prospective employers.  LEAs are also generally required to provide students’ names, addresses, and telephone listings to military recruiters, when requested.


[1]  If the LEA receives funds under the ESEA, all the secondary schools in that LEA are subject to the requirements in these laws.
