JROTC PRELUDE
  JROTC (Junior Reserve Officer Training Corp) has been in NYC schools for a long time. There has been a JROTC program in New York City schools since at least 1994 when what was to become one of the largest JROTC programs in the country opened at Francis Lewis High School in Queens. It didn’t take long before it was a hugely popular program.  Even though many aspects of the program are popular with children and their parents, members of GPB and other groups vehemently oppose the military in our schools in any of its many guises–whether it be a JROTC program or recruiters roaming the halls or being on the corner when children leave for the day.
We want our children to be students, not soldiers. Read more.

Drones & extrajudicial killing:
