Lawrence High School's film and media department will present "No Child Left Unrecruited: A Documentary," at 7 p.m. April 24 at the Lawrence Arts Center, 940 N.H.

The film 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 funding. Additionally, the film examines how being included in the LHS student directory and/or opting in or opting out of being contacted by the military has many different consequences, many of which are unclear under current school policy. The students have interviewed principals, teachers, students, parents, Superintendent Randy Weseman, Congressman Dennis Moore and a military recruiter.

The event is sponsored by the LHS Filmmakers, Lawrence ACLU and the League of Women Voters of Lawrence-Douglas County.

Another use of taxpayers' money for a partisan political agenda. How typical of the government schools.

for balence, will they then show a documentary on the positive values of being in the military? or one that shows the good that our military does?

these liberals are really stuck in their prejudices. someone in military uniform to them is either a poor dupe doesn't know any better, trapped by economic or academic circumstances, or perhaps a "babykiller" gun toting monster. they completely ignore the nobility and honor of our service personnel who often chose to serve their country because they love their country. then again, the concept of "loving their country" is foreign to liberals, too.

If it's so honorable to serve (and it is) when will we see a flood of children and grandchildren of the draft avoiders in congress signing up to spread freedom and democracy throughout the Middle East?
