Student Survey: Militarism, War and Our Schools
At the December 8 MAPSO Freedom School 5 hour teachers development conference on Family Separation, NJ AntiWar Agenda presented workshops on US militarism and how it contributes to family separation both in places where the US conducts warfare and domestically in recruiting youth into the armed forces. Through connecting with students and teachers at this event we learned that there is a pervasive involvement of military recruitment throughout the high schools around NJ. There was also interest among teachers and students in working together to promote opposition to US warfare among teachers and students and to make sure students who are considering joining the armed forces have all the information they need to make informed decisions, while working with administrations to provide limits to how accessible the student body is to the armed forces.
