Anti-Military, Pro-Gay Lexington High School At It Again!

You'd never know it was the birthplace of American liberty, where armed Minutemen once walked. Now, friends in Lexington have alerted us to the most recent skirmish in that hopelessly p-c town. From a concerned parent:

"We just received a letter from Michael Jones, Principal of the high school, informing us about how to opt-out from having our child's name given to armed forces recruiters, which is provided for as part of the No Child Left Behind Act....

"Very interesting that the school is sending this information and opt-out form to the families of every junior and senior, just to keep from getting on a list for possible solicitation by our armed forces recruiters vs. providing similar information for the Mass. Parental Notification Law !!"

Another parent writes:

"It baffles my mind, why I can't do the same thing with the homosexual recruiters. Jones is a Gay Activist supporter - without a doubt. His '... as soon as possible...' plea made me sick."

Here's the letter from the Principal:

Dear Parents of Seniors and Juniors:
On January 8, 2002, President George Bush signed into law the "No Child Left Behind Act of 2001." Part of the law -" Armed Forces Recruiter Access to Students and Student Recruiting Information" -requires that we give names, addresses, and phone numbers of seniors and juniors unless parents give us written instructions not to do so. Please complete the form below and return it to me as soon as possible if you do NOT want your child's name given to recruiters for the armed services.
Michael P. Jones
