Boards of Education
One of the hallmarks of the American educational system is local control of schools through the elected boards of education. School board members are responsible for seeing that the children of the community are well prepared to make good choices in life. The federal government provides local systems with millions of dollars in exchange for compliance with regulations of all kinds, including a requirement to make students’ private home contact information available to military recruiters. That kind of money is hard to turn down. School board members must make sure their constituents’ rights are respected to the extent that is allowed under law.
