Knitting the Network: JROTC in Schools Palm Card?


The following videos challenge the justifications for the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) programs to be located in US and US territory high schools. These programs number more than 4000 in high schools nationally representing Army, Navy, and Air Force, (Now Space Force). The U.S. Army's JROTC program currently operates in more than 1,700 public and private high schools, military institutions, and correctional centers throughout the United States and overseas.

The Knitting the Network: JROTC in Schools Palm Card document is to be used for counter-recruitment in high and middle schools and its QR codes and links direct students, teachers, and parents to the following Youtube videos:

  1. Should JROTC be in schools?
  2. Is JROTC a Character Education program?

  3. Teaching Marksmanship in Schools?

The videos utilize the imagery and practice of knitting as a non-invasive theme to discuss a controversial subject of military indoctrination programs in our schools that have the ultimate goal of generating military recruits once these cadets finish high school. The rate of those who complete four years of JROTC entering into the armed forces is about 40%.

These videos were produced in the NNOMY southern office in 2018.
