The Military Complex and PARCC

imagesThe school-to-prison pipeline has been discussed for years.  It is a true disgrace that we have not prioritized stopping this form of structural racism.  But now, let’s discuss the school-to-military pipeline.

In this article, it reports this:  “Educators say the new graduation requirements have led to:  A military aptitude test that was seldom used in New Jersey schools being widely administered.”

Please don’t get me wrong. If students choose the military, I fully support and respect that decision.  If, however, we are using the failure to pass the PARCC test as a means to feed students into the military, I have a huge problem.  How about you?
