As JROTC approaches its one hundredth year birthday, its purpose of “Motivating young people to become better citizens” has not changed; however, there are many aspects of it that changed and can be changed. The past showed where the program was built up, how it was built up and how it was back then. In the present, JROTC consist of how it was in the past and how it has improved and how it is compared to the past. The future will be when JROTC will keep building off of the past and the present which then turns into the past.
Because of loopholes in the way federal educational funding is managed, it has caused an issue with military and veteran students being misled into going to a for-profit college. They are promised a degree equal to a community or state college, but some active duty service members’, veterans’, and family members’ have found that the credentials do not transfer to other colleges or are not recognized by all employers, which they do not find out until after they have exhausted their G.I. bill, taken out loans to cover the rest of their degree to graduate or dropped out. Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA), Chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, set up a committee that conducted a two-year study on the troubling realities of For-Profit Schools, he says “In this report, you will find overwhelming documentation of overpriced tuition, predatory recruiting practices, sky-high dropout rates, billions of taxpayer dollars spent on aggressive marketing and advertising, and companies gaming regulations to maximize profits. These practices are not the exception -- they are the norm; they are systemic throughout the industry, with very few exceptions” (United States). For-profit colleges are abusing the system and taking advantage of the active duty service members’,
The people who ran the real boot camps, were quite skeptical. "The key reason we are successful is that we have a clientele down here that chose to be here on their own," said Sgt. Maj. Ford Kinsley, who oversees drill instructors at the United States Marine Corps' recruitment base in Parris Island, S.C. "They are not here because a judge said you should go here. Our population comes with a lot more positive attitudes."
Some company pays educational institutions directly for expensive, intense training programs that require payment up front (O’Reilly, Brendan 2001). Today, nearly 15 percent of our domestic workforce is enrolled in college and university coursework, more than half seeking advanced degrees. Our participation rates are three times the national average for companies with similar programs. And, participants' retention rate is double that of all employees (Cassidy, John F. 2004).
To succeed in life, people think they need to have jobs. For good reason too, for people must have jobs to afford the necessary items like car payments, food, rent or a mortgage, etc. Unfortunately, college students do not usually learn the skills that they should know to succeed in the workforce. Some students may think that a degree will automatically obtain them a job, however, in some situations it simply serves as a minimum requirement. Even though some colleges have applicable majors that help, many colleges still have antiquated teaching techniques. I would like to present some things that colleges should improve on, and some that colleges should start doing.
Boot Camp along the line is been said that it can be called the Panacea Phenomenon, by breaking down and individual and reforming them to be a productive member of society with a new
AFEP Camp—Advanced Field Exercises and Physical Challenge Program is one of the many special training programs that Marines have the opportunity to take advantage of and earn certificates in their records while serving on active duty in the Corps. It is one of the most difficult and challenges programs in all the Corps advanced training and extension certification programs offerings. To earn the certification that it imparts means that you are one of the most physically adept and capable men in the Corps. The thing is that it’s so difficult that most of the men who sign up for the program end up dropping out within the first few days of its getting underway each cycle. I had been on the waiting list the AFEP for more than 14 months when I finally got the word that I had been given a spot.
The college level is, in a certain sense, too late.” The young ladies are nowadays deciding what they're would like to major much earlier than what than young men would like to major in. If they decide they're not interested in computer science at the end of 8th grade, there's nothing that can change them to do at the college level to change their paradigm. The sad news here is that the number of computer sience teachers is very less and so much so that theirs is only one out of 10 teachers that is competent enough to teach computer science. Hence, the problem of the lack of good computer science in the secondary schools in the country is also a very big major problem. Therefore, it wouldn’t be wrong if we say that the problem of the shortage of jobs takes place in the United States from the very rudimentary level. Therefore, we need to dig deep to completely clear this problem of not having enough computer science majors else it won’t long enough that there would be a technological crisis in the United States just because there aren’t people to handle the multiple databases and control cryptology on which the world currently
Kimberly, I agree with your concept about boot camp, especially the education aspect. However I believe boot camps are not very effective, reason being, the time span of two to six months is very short, furthermore, when these juveniles are released back into society, they go back to the same neighborhood, same friends and family member, which usually is bad influences. However, I have heard so many stories from several, parents who had juveniles in boot camp, this program did them no justice, because most of these juveniles are now incarcerated, for serious offenses, serving between twenty-five to thirty years.
Investing into a programs that helps people complete college, schools, or training programs is a great idea to see them move up the ladder. Such aid can be useful for people wanting to better them self’s. There will be regulations to the program for people how make their way into the system just to abuse the aid. Such guards will be meeting a certain G.P.A, attending classes and passing classes. Basic standards to be in the program that is run by the government. After the first-generation of participants finish whatever they chose Brooks says something in the lines of their children will be attending schools that that teach successful habits and traits. That
Case studies get boring after a while, and often times, they repeat the same themes (i.e. rebrand, partnership, adapt, funding). By giving students real projects, they will not only be more active, they will be more marketable in the job market because they have prior experience. Likewise, partnering with corporations for outside projects could lead to the school increasing grant money and improve the image of the college. Another opportunity is the college can further integrate the gaming and business majors to enhance the live studio. If the college is able to produce successful games, not only would they gain funds to support this endeavor, it would improve their brand. Finally, the Barrett Center presents the opportunity for students to sit, collaborate, and complete homework in a fun environment on the Worcester campus. Although there is the library and the Hawks nest, both these areas are not well suited for group discussion. I feel by creating this space, students GPA would increase and possibly student involvement as
Lifetime Athletics is introducing outdoor Military style boot camps at the Promenade park. The boot camps will be a separate entity of Lifetime Athletics and therefore will not be included into the existing Lifetime Athletics gym membership packages. Since no other organization has ever introduced outdoor boot camps in Mississauga, therefore a thorough marketing analysis is required to determine if the boot camps will be a success at this market.
Over the past five years, the number of students majoring in Computer Science at the University of Maryland has grown rapidly. Class sizes will be larger leading to poor performances in the computer science student body. Some of these students will graduate with skill sets directed towards declining careers. The University of Maryland needs to limit the enrollment of students majoring in Computer Science.
Instead of learning how to discipline their unruly teens, parents are letting boot camp leaders do their dirty work for them. Parents pay large sums of money to avoid taking responsibility for their own children.
The discussions surrounding boot camps has always been extremely controversial. Many question the abilities of the inmates to learn with the strict military style regimen ( O’Neill, MaKenzie, and Bierie 2007). Although there are many basic similarities among the boot camps other aspects differ greatly. Each program is constructed differently with
