JROTC UNDER FIRE IN LOS ANGELES

ROTC has been under attack on our college and university campuses for quite some time. Then the attacks moved down to the high school level with San Francisco killing the JROTC program last November.

Now JROTC is under attack in the Los Angeles school system and membership is decreasing as a result. It won't surprise you when you see who's behind the organized effort to end JROTC in LA schools. The teachers, however, got my attention:

Many teachers are openly hostile toward JROTC, Jesse said, and some wear T-shirts that say "A War Budget Leaves Every Child Behind."

And these people are teaching our kids...our future. Read the LA Times article here.
