Military Recruitment

See our petition here!

The military’s aptitude test (ASVAB) is given to most 11th & 12th grade public school kids in NY State. Along with test scores, schools also send to military recruiters personal information about students, elicited by the test forms, including their race, social security number, and skills. Parents and students are often not made aware that such information is being transferred to military recruiters. The only way to protect the privacy of NY State students, and to insure that test scores and personal information will not be furnished to the military without parental consent, is to require schools to select Option 8. Please click here and sign our petition, asking your education officials to enact a state-wide policy, already in place in New York City, that requires public schools to select Option 8. That Option will prohibit the release of student information to military recruiters.
