JROTC: Military Training in Schools
Details for JROTC: Military Training in Schools
NameJROTC: Military Training in Schools

jrotc in schoolsThe Junior Reserve Officer Trainings Corps (JROTC) was originally developed under the National Defence Act of 1916 to increase U.S. readiness in the face of World War I. The program experienced rapid expansion in the 1990’s, which continues to this day. The courses in military science are taught in high schools by retired military personnel and are a highly successful recruiting and public relations tool for the military. If a JROTC unit or academy is starting up or already running in your community, begin raising questions. Meet with the principal, teachers’ union representatives, student groups, and school board members and challenge them to consider what tradeoffs have been made.
