Military recruiters show up regularly in Glen Ridge High School. The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is actually offered at Bloomfield High School. But students at Montclair High have started an organization called OYE OYE (Open Your Eyes Open Your Eyes), encouraging parents to opt out of the No Child Left Behind Act provision that gives military recruiters access to student information. So far, according to a story in today’s Ledger, 1,628 of 1,937 students at the school have had their parents to block access to their records.
So, when you’re ready to stop arguing about Girl Scout cookies (lighten up, we just thought it was funny), come on over and start a brawl here.
