Reps. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.), Pete Stark (D-Calif.) and Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.) gathered with the band Anti-Flag Thursday on Capitol Hill to help launch the site MilitaryFreeZone.org and a national petition drive to restore privacy to student records in schools.

The petition aims to rewrite the provision of the No Child Left Behind Act that forces schools to hand over personal student information to military recruiters. MilitaryFreeZone.org also has published a form students can submit in order to block the military from accessing personal information about them.
