Chancellors Reg 6.09.pdf

New York City is the largest school system in the country with 1 million students and over 450 high schools. It has taken 6 years, but we (Ya-Ya Network & the Students or Soldiers? Coalition) FINALLY got a Chancellor's Regulation on recruiters in schools. While it is not perfect, it is still one of the most progressive policies in the country.
 
We hope that folks in other parts of the country will be able to use it as a precident when they approach their own school boards. Please feel free to contact us if you want more information. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 239-0022.

This collection of articles represents a historical overview of the U.S. based counter-recruitment movement's strategies to inform and intervene in schools and the community about the Pentagon's multi-billion dollar programs to recruit America's youth into escalating wars. The NNOMY Reader also includes some information on alternatives to enlistment, as well as research presented by activists and investigators on the nature and risks of cultural militarization and how it  threatens our democracy.
