Army opens prep school for dropouts
Here. It's a two-fer:
It shows how under water the public school system is, as if we didn't know, and it shows that the imperial mission* isn't sustainable (at least on a volunteer basis, and I doubt very much on the basis of a draft).
Something's gotta give. Goes for a lot of systems these days.
NOTE * I just wish progressives could make a deal with the Paulists on euthanizing our imperial role. It's way too expensive, and it's turned us into torturers. One more reason to go trans-partisan.
