The question posted Wednesday on The Herald-Mail's website was: Do you approve of a new Maryland law that bars public high schools in the state from automatically sending student scores on a widely used military aptitude test to recruiters?
"Unless the parent signs a release or the student is 18, the test scores should not be automatically sent to recruiters. I agree with the new law."
"They won't automatically send your SATs anywhere without your authorization, so if you take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB), then you should be able to say one way or the other where you want those test scores to go."
"The ASVAB is taken by those interested in military service. If someone has taken the ASVAB, they did so knowing that it was for the armed services. To me, that shows an interest in serving in one of those services. If someone has shown that interest, the information should be forwarded to the recruiters."
