Getting beyond JROTC - Page 2

We'd much rather see local kids encouraged to become cops than directed into the military

Mayor Gavin Newsom, to his shame, supports JROTC — but if the school board stands firm and the leading candidates make it clear that they will not go back on this decision, then there's no reason the mayor, the police and fire commissions, NERT, and the school board can't move forward — today — with a credible alternative that will take the political wind out of the issue. JROTC is, and ought to be, dead in San Francisco. It's time to move on.
