They Want Your Students

One part of No Child Left Behind’s reauthorization that’s sure to get attention on Capitol Hill this spring is Section 9528, which requires high schools to give military recruiters access to students’ information or risk losing federal grant money. In the meantime, some districts have reacted to local political pressure from parent-teacher and peace activist organizations by removing support for JROTC programs and highlighting the ability of students and their parents to opt out of any military recruitment activities.

    You Wouldn't Want to Be in Alexander the Great's Army!

    9/1/06 School Library Journal
    -Theses entries in the popular series continue to bring history alive. Each title focuses on one event or period told from the point of view of an individual participant. In Tea Party, readers assume the role of a poor young man living in Boston who is too short to join the British Army; in China, readers learn what it was like to be imprisoned and then forced to work on the Great Wall for five years; and in Roman Soldier, readers role is that of a young man who wants to escape his dull life and see the world. The books are filled to the page edges with facts and gory details about the harshness of conditions and severity of life in these times. The illustrations are light and comical, and deftly balance the blood-and-guts focus of the texts. Purchase where other titles in the series are in demand or where books for reluctant readers are needed.
