The Navy, It's not just a job…It's a High School

The Navy, “It’s not a job, it’s an adventure!” or so the old recruiting slogan used to go. But if Chicago’s mayor Daley, and the Navy have their way, there will be a new military academy on the north side of town.
This is not a new program, there are two military schools already in Chicago. Chicago Military Academy and Carver Military High School, both on the south side of the city. As of two years ago the amount of requests to go to these public schools turned military academies has far exceeded demand.
They’re in the midst of the city. The challenges, many and varied. Time will tell if by installing a sense of discipline, and military bearing will produce young adults able to meet the rigors of the real world and higher education, better than their peers in other inner city schools. Here’s to their success and to the success of students attending.
