Currently, under No Child Left Behind, military recruiters are allowed access to students in the schools.
Militarism is being indoctrinated in very young children as well. See the recent editorial in Truthout, "Lowering the Bar: Kindergarten Recruitment."
Let's help combat this indoctrination of the young and support our families by helping them educate their children about the value of peace. Please spread the word to your neighbors and friends about the Children's Peace Fair this Saturday.
