Army to run State Schools

The Army is to be called in to run some State schools.

This is the Hitler youth idea.

Those who know a bit about the history of State schooling know its origins were to train poor boys how to obey military orders, as a preparation for the army (in Prussia).
It was so successful that State "schooling" spread across Europe, America and the world. It was NOT about education.

So now it's coming out in the open. School is about robot obedience, uniforms, hierarchy, and training as cannon fodder.

"drills, uniformed parades, weapons handling and adventure training."
Adventure training maybe. Physical exercise is much needed since schools sold off their sports grounds.
But how is the rest going to improve literacy? self confidence facing up to the authorities? or social skills around MUTUAL respect and MUTUAL cooperation?

Hitler Youth did this same military takeover of the young. So does every dictatorship.
