DOE Welcomes the U.S. Army into Nine NYC Public High Schools, More Likely to Follow

("This is the way they are going to condition our kid's to be use to Military presence,")

The New York Post and Newsday today brought us the disturbing news that nine NYC public high schools plus a tenth school in New Jersey will be partnering with the U.S. Army to learn “life skills.” As the Post states, “…students will be drilled by soldiers in setting goals,” adding later the preposterous assertion from military officials that “the project is not a recruitment tool.”

The program will be overseen through the DOE’s Public School Athletic League (PSAL), but the true coordinating body is a nonprofit organization called Academics in Motion (AIM) that already operates in all ten of those schools under a five-year, $1 million contract from the DOE. While their program until now appears to have been a positive one in motivating students through athletics, this new arrangement calls their presence and their contract with DOE into question and raises serious civil liberties concerns regarding campus access to and recruiting of high school students..........

Think of this rather as a great opportunity for our children to condition the military personell by asking them all of the hard questions they need to be asked.

It doesn't have to be a one way street, our young people in schools can organize and have an all out discussion with the military sent to the schools about such things as the FRAUDULANT 'war on terror" (REIGN of terror for oil and nat. gas pipelines/Israel/land bases/ $$$$.), the murdering of hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians based on LIES, the cost to society in terms of capital and young lives, and the very mentality itself that teaches this culture of death and destruction.

Think of this too as a course in character building, where our young can stand up and show who they really are and develop their skills at standing tough in the face of adversity and how they can help show their fellow students what it is to be a 'REAL AMERICAN"!!!

Anyone having children being subjected to these indoctrinations should perhaps prepare them for this dialogue with ''recruiters" and show them this is rather an OPPORTUNITY to really "BE ALL THEY CAN BE" by standing up to BS whenever and wherever one is presented with it!!!

LEAVE !

Go to the school board and oppose this measure, if only to voice disapproval of government intervention. If the school allows it and you dont like it there are other alternatives. Home School, Private School, leave your state or country.
My personal favorite would be to home school first and on down the list if the government tries to shut you down.
My nephew was a major in the marines. He was stationed overseas in Iraq and was in charge of a segment that I will not disclose. I talked with him a short time after his return. I asked him if he learned anything and or if he would go back. He told me that he would not go back and would try to get out of it if forced to go. However, the military asked him if he would recruit for them part time for approx. 200,000 per year. He said he was considering it. I then asked him the following: "So you are telling me that you would do just about anything to not have to go fight in another country such as Iraq but you have no problem recruiting young men and women to go in your sted?" He just stopped and stared at me. His face turned a little pale and replied, "thats a excellent point". He stuck his hand out to shake my hand and ended up embraceing me and thanking me for the ensight.
Some people need to be educated tactfully. Many are ignorant sheeple who do not want to understand what is going on. However, there are many who are willing to listen if someone would honestly with genuine sincerity, not attacking, approach people in positions who are only trying to do a job. We have to pick and choose are battles. We must be wise how and who we approach. But in this case, my nephew trusted me and my opinion. I am also a latter vietnam veteran and so we had somewhat of a understanding how the government works with military personnel.
This is only one success story I hope many of you can contribute besides typing blogs.
I have nothing against blogging. I only wonder if many are sitting around the table and complainning but doing nothing about what the complainning is about.

I am just thrilled

I just looked at the list of schools and guess what I work in one of them. At points we are having issues with some of the kids, and it may give some of them a direction. Do not scold me for that, because I am not for the militarization of the youth. I am not anti-military either. I am at a loss for words with this, because overall I am nervous with where things are going.
BTW this was not announced to the faculty yet.

Great idea...............

Is This a Prelude to The Militarism of Our Youth?

"Drilled by soldiers in setting goals".

What; the parents and educators aren't competent enough to do this?

The example of blind obedience to authority as part of U.S. military training is not the answer for school-age children. Turning over the responsibility of career planning to the military is a psychological ploy to advance the government's agenda to increase the size of the armed forces. Where will it lead?

I've included an historical link describing Adolph Hitler's manipulation of the German young people to become a paramilitary force.

"My program for educating youth is hard. Weakness must be hammered away. In my castles of the Teutonic Order a youth will grow up before which the world will tremble. I want a brutal, domineering, fearless, cruel youth. Youth must be all that. It must bear pain. There must be nothing weak and gentle about it. The free, splendid beast of prey must once again flash from its eyes...That is how I will eradicate thousands of years of human domestication...That is how I will create the New Order." -- Adolf Hitler, 1933.

It could happen in America, the rebirth of nationalism that will result in war.

Whoooh!

This is serious stuff.
