 Militarization of our Schools

The Pentagon is taking over our poorer public schools. This is the reality for disadvantaged youth.

 

What we can do

Corporate/conservative alliances threaten Democracy . Progressives have an important role to play.

 Why does NNOMY matter?

Most are blind or indifferent to the problem.
A few strive to protect our democracy.

Model Programs

ADOPT A SCHOOL PROGRAM MODEL

The Coalition for Alternatives to Militarism in Our Schools (CAMS) developed the Adopt a School Project as a systematic approach to organizing in the Los Angeles Unified School District, where there are over 60 high schools in a diverse and expansive school district.  This approach identifies point contacts in as many high schools as possible for the purpose of demilitarizing local schools and providing alternatives to the students.  At the same time it is important to gain the support of other allies such as the teachers union and to testify before the elected school board for district oversight and accountability. 

The Adopt a School project provides a process to disseminate and receive information to determine whether established school district policies (i.e., regarding opt out, ASVAB and recruiter access) are being implemented in the schools.  It also makes it possible to gain immediate information observed by those at the high schools regarding military recruitment improprieties, military vans on campus or other concerns that require taking action.

Please see www.militaryfreeschools.org for the informational links and detailed explanation of how to begin and implement an Adopt a School Program.  There is also a video explaining  specific steps and strategies that have been used in Los Angeles for a number of years. This program can be adapted for every school situation and helps to identify issues, goals and resources available.
