Palm Card: No Student Left Unrecruited? Military Recruitment and Students' Rights (English and Spanish) (2010) Folded palm card, explains students opt-out and other rights. Many educators, students, and parents have reported that United States Military recruiters are using heavy-handed tactics to harass students, violate their privacy rights, and target poor students and students of color in schools. To help prevent these violations, students must opt out of both the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) recruiter access provision and the Joint Advertising Market Research and Studies program (JAMRS) database.

This pamphlet seeks to help students, parents, educators, and advocates understand their rights and obligations when it comes to military recruitment. It also provides two detachable forms to help students opt out of recruiting databases and keep their information private from recruiters.
