The ASVAB is the military’s enlistment examination. The DoD claims that parents do not have the right to provide consent to the release of their children’s information when they are given the test - even when they are required to take it. Two states – Maryland and New Hampshire– have laws in place that require mom and dad to sign off before their children are tested and their personal information is delivered to the Pentagon. Hawaii’s Department of Education has a similar regulation in place. The California legislature passed a bill requiring parental consent for the DoD to test and retrieve data from minor-aged children that was ultimately vetoed. Last year, Connecticutcame close to passing legislation protecting the privacy of children who take the ASVAB. An unlikely maneuver by the Veterans Affairs Committee in that Democrat-controlled state killed the measure at the last minute. In addition to the ASVAB, the military operates several dozen programs in the schools, many which extract information for recruiting purposes.
