San Diego Schools Restrict Military Recruiters

San Diego schools have voted to rein in aggressive military and college recruiters.

The school board voted Tuesday night for a policy that allows recruiters to visit high school campuses twice each school year. They must stay in assigned areas and wait for students to approach them. Recruiters can pass out contact information but can't collect a student's contact information.

City News Service says one student told the board that Army recruiters set up games and an obstacle course at her school, told her she needed to register to play, took her photo and asked for personal information.

The policy also bars recruiters from using confidential information taken from students' career aptitude tests.
