Cadet forces in schools to restore order… July 29, 2008Posted by Al in : educational , trackback
… or to try to recruit more kids into our struggling armed forces? I agree wholeheartedly that the current situation for teachers is getting worse, with kids manipulating their new rights to bully and harass teachers; and I also agree that cadet groups within schools might well give some order to the lives of some kids. However, I wouldn’t like to think that we have reached the stage where we have to start brainwashing youngsters in order to keep up the staffing of our armed forces, especially when they are committed to conflicts that the majority of the UK would not like to see them involved in. I think that if we started to bring troops back home and deployed them more wisely, then cadet forces in schools would be acceptable.
