CHULA VISTA, Calif. — Schools across the country are preparing to formally track students from military families, monitoring their academic progress as they move from military base to military base and state to state, under a new provision in the federal education law.
The change comes in response to concerns raised by the Department of Defense that the children of active-duty members of the Army, Navy, Coast Guard, Air Force and Marines have academic and emotional needs that schools are ill-equipped to meet.
(It’s so the government can help the kids, don’t you know, because the children are our future. And about "the federal education law" -- Did Congress add the monitoring to a present law, or did bureaucrats in some federal agency make the decision?)
