11:35 pm
the u.s. army is teaching at more than three thousand public schools students who aren't for the army are exempt from physical education. the biggest thing a look at as just make sure your hair does not touch your ears. then facing a four year program created unfunded by the pentagon lots of finger nails right here what is authorized colors. let me see your nails all right now hold them up right now tomorrow. if she doubt her nails like this right here she's going to lose points let me see goals come from back so we come from structured environment and we know what it takes to create a structured environment regolith teaches a graduate teaches to to fit and then they they start teaching but i don't think
11:36 pm
they really understand classroom management or mention large groups of people in different. different ways of doing it like we do this and maybe that's why we can get the kids do push ups but a regular teacher could you know as i want to be you know become more of a better citizen in the country and well i just want to become stronger physically and mentally most of those things would. listen spaceless. just like listen i wasn't interested in. the specific interest. will cause i would like to say stuff like this as well but any question soul for. the j r o t c program was founded in one thousand nine hundred sixteen. or one but over time its influence waned it was only after nine eleven. president george bush
11:37 pm
revitalized its image shortly thereafter the military starts preparing for war in afghanistan they need volunteers but there aren't any due to the impending war officially the pentagon calls it a contribution to the development of youth in chicago colonel retired after serving thirty three years in the army supervises junior cadets or the junior. program is really about citizenship it's about. teaching young boys and girls high school age you know young men and women about service and you know what they can do to better themselves but i have nothing to do with recruiting so it's a distinct difference and it's a very important point because a lot of people a lot of teachers don't understand that they think that we are and you know we almost get defensive because we have to explain that we're not on a regular basis in chicago the program is widespread the army teaches that one in
11:38 pm
four schools more than ten thousand adolescents the authorities accept this militarization of education especially useful for fighting gangs. for neighborhoods harlem high school another one finger and so south and west ten an era to be the rough once again it's what i would call the anti-gay we give alternative is great after two days for kids to do things a lot of fun and give back to the society the army is a good gang acting as a counterweight to the violent gangs last year three hundred one use under sixteen were shot thirty one died. to protect students the city provide security for their way home guards are mostly veterans of iraq and afghanistan. i go for be careful.
11:39 pm
people die every night two thousand and sixteen was the deadliest year in chicago this past decade six hundred dead more than in any other american city shady characters walk the street as a curfew for people under twenty one starting at nine in the evening. district in the city's south. in the morning. ready for school she's been in the sea for four years. kind of excited to. have. actual.
11:40 pm
lunny i guess legace just. a uniform. over chaos for childhood shaped by violence. on wednesday students and most of. the three hundred eighty cadets have to wear the uniform one in five students has opted for the army the day starts with a troop inspection. didn't take up your clothes you don't have you don't think i owe you not for your mum think over your clothes you carried on your forearm i missed one. and. since september yes man has been leading the cadets she is the boss she inspects
11:41 pm
the troops. feel like i'm with the army yeah because at school like we're so used to like just doing everything maybe halfway and not actually giving it our hundred and when you see like the army videos you're like oh my god like they're so strict they have to do everything in unison whether you're shy or not your chance to step up to any problems so that way for comfortable with yourself and things you are yourself so pretty much gives you that confidence but. that's read again. but. i don't see. the army doesn't just teach these students discipline they also learn the history of the armed forces as well as doing civil studies and getting into shape the pentagon provides the pool and is the sole decision maker regards their content.
11:42 pm
what does the army expense of the children it moves to its ideals officially nothing but it's hard to ignore the sergeant's business. it's. this this all of. the recruiters they leave their carts and these a different routers navy army. marine corps and if looking at is interested in the military will give them the card and they contact the recruiter and the recruiter assist them in joining the military and that's why i said that we really don't. recruit we'll sister if the cadet is interested in going in the military but we don't recruit ourselves it's a win win because at the college level if the kid meets the requirements he or she could get either a for four years style should pay four or three or even two and then at the end
11:43 pm
of their college when they're about to graduate then they would be commissioned as an officer in the army air force or navy which actually pays very well if you go to college the additional way there's no guarantees you get a job when you graduate college. does the school administration approve of these methods how to teach is that america's public schools see the presence of the army in their classrooms nancy wiley headmistress at the hubbard school is pragmatic. c.p.s. is struggling sometimes you know financially so we have to be real careful about our how we promote programs and how we finance programs and share to some program is funded through the district so we don't take our school money to pay to have some teaches. yes it is which is a nice thing so and they're all military they're retired military. officers and
11:44 pm
they come in. and they give back to the kids so they get paid through the sunni arabs who see program in the city so it's nice something we don't have to pay for. the program also includes morning and evening activities before and after school formal training parades military music college god. the army is creative in how it uses military drills to inspire thousands of american youngsters to become soldiers . whoa whoa whoa
11:45 pm
. opposes the system. leave the army and since then he has someone to discourage use from joining his former employer. they're. not communicating the full story. they ask me duty is very popular first video game. play and they ask me is the military like call of duty. vast majority people
11:46 pm
who do the civilians they said. do you hear women and children screaming you know when they see their son or daughter child. beauty the video game. turn off call of duty oh yeah. these kids don't hear the darker side. to be a special forces soldier and foolish in afghanistan. he tries to convince teaches to let him talk about the reality of school. and i signed up to prevent another terrorist attack. targeting so many innocent people. creating the conditions for more terrorist attacks. there is an important statistic. between one nine hundred eighty and two thousand and one there are three hundred eighty four suicide bombs around the world only ten percent of those suicide directed at
11:47 pm
the u.s. and u.s. interests since two thousand and one there's been over twenty five hundred suicide bombs around the world with ninety percent aimed at the u.s. and u.s. interests. i'm lucky if i speak to three schools here because. generally positive the teachers you know because it's a positive program don't necessarily. or rock the boat or bring someone like me and talk to the kids. for it i mean it's a perk arius work environment for so many teachers unfortunately so it's. the us spends about sixty billion dollars a year on education we spend probably six hundred billion dollars a year on average on the military so it's about ten times more on the military than advocation we close fifty public schools here they said there's no money for the schools so the military. is filling in the blanks. operates in
11:48 pm
districts while statistics on ethnic breakdowns in fronts not in the u.s. since chicago's see made up of fifty four percent latino thirty seven percent african-americans and only five percent caucasian. parents came to thirty years ago from mexico they rented out a small room for events in their neighborhood yasmin is the youngest of four children in the evening after school she always helps them in six months graduates she dreams of going to university and becoming a social work designer. exploring a lot in being able to do many things at the same time and i know with being in the need to travel a lot which is awesome but i don't think i would be able to handle being away from
11:49 pm
home that long some people say. because they say. maybe not born in the united states and they feel like that's a great thing something made this. the geographic allocation of the program shows discrepancies. for instance there's only one school in montana. program with just two schools in new hampshire. population of both states is ninety percent white the army is active in the major
11:50 pm
cities in the failing states of the rust belt and especially in the south. particularly in texas there are more than two hundred. deployed troops. back home nearby. fort hood the. other regions main employer. this is where the army has set up shooting ranges at schools teaching students how to use guns. every morning an hour before these young fourteen year old takes practice shooting.
11:51 pm
about five hundred feet. teach adults because many adults. and rifles and especially other kids that have pellet rifle b.b. guns you know they don't have a lot of them haven't been to safety classes. kind of pride in our states of america and carry relations and actually gets to be ok when they do not want it is because. you are the future of america you want to control the country we continue to have fear is that they
11:52 pm
know that you can control. you know you know that right. you control fear not made a control you because you view at her to that on the ballot your courage to do what's right whether you're in the classroom and you've been on the battlefield humming you need tell you need three. including tennis once and it's like like other jobs you'd be like sitting in an office all day or some day you want to do would just get boring after a few years but i know the military will give me a chance to reach out to others and also make me a better person that's why i want to join the military actually already doing a little teary sure botham's life. so when my classmate who was saying. you can't go wrong with the military it's a great stepping stone for whatever career you want to do. the military's great
11:53 pm
memory way you know it builds leaders every single day that we care is our country we can control more we can actually embrace and inspire more with that power that's why i think the military is like great things to do and that's why i joined a c. unit trying to get me and i saluted the ship off right after graduation. seventeen years. of age. three years in the army with the option of extending to eighty is a program. makes this possible. still in school. every day he meets his trainers who prepare him for military service until he receives his obligatory diploma. the young man drives a sports car the money for it at attack a restaurant the army has promised to teach him how to drive tanks.
11:54 pm
so. yes they were going to be going to. school on friday. they are.
11:55 pm
there to the area like this right in texas the high school market is definitely where recruiters want to be because that's where the majority of people want to join in the syria in august if you want to be able to afford them the opportunity to. cover nineteen different high schools and. not have to work on any. of them have assigned high schools that they should be in. twice weeks geraghty see is probably the biggest asset and as far as recruiting goes you know we go out to the schools who are looking for. there's no conscription in the u.s. as in one hundred forty six other countries some recruiters have to sell a u.s. army to eighty thousand use a year two thousand and one law makes this easy schools must submit data on all the students to the pentagon so to can contact them directly at home otherwise funding is cut. it's quite
11:56 pm
a task right now i have i think i have fifty three future soldiers in our program at one point we were up to seventy five. and so it's a challenge you know and especially some of them being younger they you know you have to keep up with them and give all of you know to do what they're supposed to. you know it's it can be challenging. and the fight for their heart starts in primary school every regiment of the fort hood base has set up a partnership with a school. this operation enticement to see soldiers spend hundreds of hours every year with these children they read to them go to the school canteen with them and help them with their homework. that.
11:57 pm
ted and i. like this i just. see little. anyone i believe. form was very nice living along.
11:58 pm
with. forty percent of junior reservists enlist in the army after graduating. i'm pretty sure every parent then as a son or daughter in the military would be in their afraid for their home for their child. from here on out i'm pretty much more sensible for our little cradle but then they know their sons are good. cars which isn't this or that.
11:59 pm
