The Politics of Another Side: Truth-in-Military-Recruiting Advocacy in an Urban School District
Anderson, Gary L.
Educational Policy, v23 n1 p267-291 2009
This article provides documentation of the current military presence in U.S. secondary schools and groups that have mobilized to monitor or oppose this presence. This documentation provides the background for a narrative of a multiple-year effort the author engaged in to promote academic freedom for teachers and students and to provide high school students greater balance in the information they receive with regard to opting for military service. This narrative provides insights on the ways advocacy efforts build on previous efforts, the kinds of obstacles advocates encounter when working with school professionals, and strategies for effective activism and policy advocacy with regard to military presence in schools.
