Cadet forces to be expanded in state schools
Military ‘spirit’ is to be encouraged in classrooms with the expansion of cadet forces in state schools.
Michael Gove, the education secretary, wants to see more after-school uniform parades to instil the “spirit of service” in the next generation.
On Monday he will announce further measures to increase the influence of the armed forces in the classroom.
Schools in England and Wales are already preparing for the ‘Troops to Teachers’ programme that will see former ex-service personnel offered free training courses to take up a second career in teaching.
