Confronting Unregulated Military Recruitment in New York City Public Schools (2007)

Confronting Unregulated Military Recruitment in New York City Public SchoolsAs the United States military intensifies its recruitment activities inside public high schools to meet wartime quotas, careful oversight of military recruitment tactics in schools is critical. The federal No Child Left Behind Law of 2001 grants the military wide access to public high schools and students’ personal information. While United States Army statistics list New York City as a top source for enlistment, the full extent of military recruitment efforts in New York City public schools remains unknown.

This paper explores how war-themed video games may impact gamers' perception of modern warfare. The popularity of violent video games such as Call of Duty has prompted researchers to investigate the effects that extensive game play may have on consumers. Due to their high potential for psychological influence, enhanced by military involvement and social networking, there is reason to believe that violent, war-themed video games may have psychological effects on gamers that could negatively impact their decisions regarding war and violence.
