Military Recruiting in High Schools

From School Space to Marketplace

Author: Brian W. Lagotte

Publisher: Springer

ISBN: 9463005188

This book focuses exclusively on specific education policy instead of general military recruiting in high schools. "When the George W. Bush administration passed its landmark education legislation in 2001, dubbed the No Child Left Behind Act, legislators included a small section containing strict military recruiting mandates for public high schools. The law had two main provisions. First, a data sharing provision requires high schools to distribute the personal directory information of every student to all local armed forces recruiting stations on an annual basis. Second, the equal access provision requires high schools to provide military recruiters access to school grounds equal to university recruiters or career recruiters. For accountability, if these provisions are not fulfilled, the school will lose all federal education funds. Students or parents may “opt out” of the data collection through a bureaucratic process, but no such opt-out option exists for the soldiers visiting schools. When President Barack Obama renewed the omnibus education law in 2015, the name changed to the Every Student Succeeds Act, but the military mandates remained – the provisions were strengthened by including a passage prohibiting any local school board from instituting an “opt-in” bureaucratic structure for parents and students. This book focuses on how the two provisions have been met by parents, school staff, soldiers, and other individuals influenced by high school education policy and military recruiting. The central question is: do military recruiting methods utilized in public high schools work to promote the best interests of the students, or should policy makers rethink the freedom adult soldiers have when interacting with children within schools?

Your Passport to Gifted Education

This book is a guide to help teachers, parents, guidance counselors and other stakeholders understand the importance of intervention for gifted children and to become an advocate for those individuals who are developmentally advanced. The reader becomes engaged in the analogy of a three part airplane journey to the world of gifted education: ‘Embarking on a Journey;’ ‘Preparing for Departure’ and ‘Planning for Arrival.’ The author offers insightful case studies followed by strategies for both teachers and parents gained from personal experiences and research to identify and work with different types of children who present unique challenges due to their special needs of high potential. By presenting a historical overview in gifted education from a global perspective, Your Passport to Gifted Education provides current internationally-researched information to clarify what is meant by ‘giftedness’ according to various cultures. The book encourages the development of a growth mindset in the reader to seek to identify various characteristics of high ability in all children. Four international high ability identification models are introduced, including one relatively new to North America, the High Performance Learning Framework (HPL), currently used throughout China, Europe, the Middle East and South East Asia. Dispelling the myth that gifted children do not need our help, the reader gains insight into the uniquely different types of gifted individuals. The book concludes by awarding the reader with a ‘Landing Card’ to serve as a bookmarker that underpins the best teaching practices in gifted education. A directory list of websites for international gifted organizations is also included to offer additional resources for those who want to continue their journey as advocates and learn how other countries support gifted children around the world.
