Conflicts of Interest: The Pentagon Is Invading Public Schools

On COI #120, Kyle Anzalone discusses the use of JROTC instructors to teach courses at Chicago’s public schools. Hundreds of students – primarily from lower-income black or Hispanic communities – are being funneled into the classes without the consent of parents. Schools argue the Pentagon-funded program helps to cover budget shortfalls. Black and Hispanic students are overrepresented in the CPS JROTC program, and those who go through it are more likely to enlist.

Kyle breaks down the evolution of the war in Afghanistan. CENTCOM reports that the withdrawal is 50% complete. However, the Pentagon still refuses to report the number of troops remaining there. The CIA is seeking a new base to operate from and the Afghan military is scrambling to find a way to maintain its air force. Kyle explains that the US plans to spend billions waging war in Afghanistan in 2022.

  1. Just a different version of the school to prison program that has been going on for decades. ALL government involvement in “education” must end immediately, and that includes their THEFT of monies from others to pay for the education of some. Sorry, only a fully competitive free market in education that includes charity schools and private scholarships, can ever hope to meet the needs of society. Get your children out now and work towards the abolition of all government monopoly schools and all school tax policies.

    Where did the American school system come from? And what are its true purposes?

  3. Years ago, when my son was a minor, he was approached by 2 marine recruiters in a mall. I walked over, explained to them that I believed the wars were illegal, I was his parent, and that if they continued, I put them under citizens arrest for contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Stoic, and stunned, they walked away.
