No Child Left Unrecruited

Kansas Families United for Public Education and Shawnee Mission Unitarian Universalist Church will sponsor a screening of the film "No Child Left Unrecruited" at 7 p.m. on May 24 at the Shawnee Mission Unitarian Universalist Church, 7725 W. 87th St., Overland Park, KS.

"No Child Left Unrecruited," explores how a little-known provision in the No Child Left Behind Act requires all public schools to provide the military with personal student information or risk the loss of all federal funds.

Additionally, the film examines how being included in the Lawrence High School school directory and/or opting in or opting out of being contacted by the military (and other third parties) has diverse consequences, many of which are unclear under current Lawrence school district policy.

The students have interviewed Lawrence High School principal Steve Nilhas, teachers, students, parents, the school district superintendent Randy Weseman, Kansas Congressman Dennis Moore, and a local military recruiter. It truly is a remarkable film, examining issues that impact us all.
