Students Want to Ban Military Recruiters

Students at one Cincinnati high school are asking administrators to keep military recruiters off campus as part of a resolution to ban groups that discriminate because of race, religion or sexual orientation. The Student Congress at Walnut Hills High School is to take the proposal before teachers, parents and community members today. If that group approves, it would go to the school board.

Student Traven La Botz says the military's ban on openly gay individuals is discriminatory. He says the Student Congress voted 29-to-4 to keep military recruiters off campus. Seven members abstained.

A Defense Department spokeswoman says the law requires high schools to give military recruiters students' names, addresses and phone numbers. And schools must give them the same access they give college or job recruiters.
