What about getting rid of The Board of Education to let the Military educate your children?

  • The military instills discipline in people and respect. I think a lot more young people can use both of those things!

  • No thank you. I prefer no military in my life. They can't even accept gays.

  • Wow, so negative. I actually pondered this becuase the Military Academies are such high quality colleges and the military training schools (which are not all infantry and guns, thank you) are intensive and thourough in a much shorter time. For instance; My job in the Coast Guard (which IS military, especially in training) is equivalent to a state job who's employees must have a four year degree or so many years of experience. My quals? Eight weeks intensive school and then six months of field experience. Viola, I am doing the work of a college-educated civilian. But, that's all college level I'm talking. Youth? Probably could use a little boot camp but I wouldn't completely replace the system, lol.

  • I'd move to another country before I let my son be educated by the military.

  • I am a supporter of the military, but I wouldn't want them educating my children either. That is NOT their Constitutional role. I believe in dissolving the Dept of Education and handing the education system over to the private sector, allowing parents more choices in education opportunities. The Dept of Ed has failed us miserably.

  • When they repeal Don't Ask Don't Tell and treat everyone with equal rights, then maybe.

  • To me the military is the last resort. It shouldnt be the first resort like so many schools like to do.
