Another Black Eye For NCLB: Sexual Misconduct By Recruiters

Not that some folks need another reason to hate NCLB, but this AP/CNN segment cites widespread sexual misconduct by military recruiters -- who gain access to high schools through a controversial provision in NCLB.

Previous news reports have cited recruiters' efforts to target low-income and minority youth, as well as recruiting LD kids. A Washington Times commentary suggests how to combat the problem (Remedies for recruiter abuse).

To me, this is the Pentagon's problem more than the USDE's (see previous posts like Blaming NCLB For The War In Iraq, What Recruiting Has Done (Could Do) to NCLB ...), but I'm sure that others would disagree.
