SF school board restores JROTC

Filed under: Uncategorized — aunursa @ 4:22 am

A three-year battle on the fate of the Junior Officers Reserve Training Corps in San Francisco schools ended last night when the Board of Education reversed its 2006 decision.  With three newly-elected board members, and following a city-wide vote last November in support of JROTC, the board voted 4-3 to restore the military leadership program less than a month before it was scheduled to end.

Hundreds of students and parents worked tirelessly over the past three years in the successful effort to restore the program.  Following the vote, students attending the board meeting celebrated.

  1. First the school board, next the Board of Supervisors. Get the freaks out of office.

  2. This is terrific news. I hope it encourages others to continue fighting the good fight. Considering this happened in SF, is remarkable. It’s expected they would close the ROTC doors. But to see the vote go this way is really significant.

  3. Perhaps now the San Diego School Board will reinstate JrROTC.
