Under the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLBA) of 2001, high schools that receive federal funds must provide certain student contact information to military recruiters upon request and must allow recruiters to have the same access to students as employers and colleges. However, at least one bill (H.R. 551) introduced in the 109th Congress would amend these requirements. This report describes these new requirements and discusses the legal issues that they may raise.
