The school shooting in FL has once again highlighted the role of the military in our lives and in our schools. It’s time to stop the militarization of our children and end the JROTC program. The Parkland high school JROTC program taught Nikolas Cruz to shoot an AR-15 and was funded by the NRA. Our schools should be filled with trained educators, not a proving ground for military-style assault rifles.
Tell Senator McCain and Representative Thornberry to take the war machine out of our schools! The JROTC program must end immediately. The money should be directed back into classrooms that educate our children.
