GS: Send Teachers To Buddhist Camps

Item: Mead educators report to boot camp: Former student offers a taste of Marine life/SR

Gregor Samsa: Wow. Rather than glorify a program probably intended to amp teachers up to be better recruiters in high schools for the military, to convince kids that their future interests are best served as being cannon fodder for the loathsome and evil Military-Industrial Complex, why don't we send teachers to buddhist camps and meditation education programs where they can open their closed minds to a world without gun and grenade slinging hate bots, a world without the need to dominate others at the point of a gun. Sorry. Not impressed.

Question: Do you see anything wrong with local educators participating in boot camp to get a taste of Marine life?
