Back to school: military and jail but not music and arts?

Military recruiters and other army personnel now have easy access to children, including in public schools where they did not use to, such as in Portland. Parents often are unaware that the US military can obtain their child's data. Learn the details and what we can do in response from Carol Van Houten from Truth in Recruiting. We will also discuss community mobilizations in response to what has become known as "school to prison pipeline."
We will then look at what is increasingly missing from public schools and talk to Jessica Jarratt Miller who manages the campaign "Schools & Arts Together" and directs the Creative Advocacy Network.
