It Could Be An Explosive First Period

This latest charter school theme scares me on so many levels.

By way of the ever vigilant Boing Boing, we learn that Wilmington, Delaware has approved a charter school with a focus on homeland security.

Curriculum choices for students, who are to be called Cadets, range from SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) through prison guard, water rescue, paramedic, fireman, professional demolition and emergency response operator, according to a Board statement.

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with any of those jobs, but I wonder if high school isn’t a little early to be making the choice to join the SWAT team.

Not to mention learning “professional demolition”.
