There is a lot that we can learn from each other by simply knowing what has been done, what worked well, and what didn’t work so well. Consider these questions when sharing your experiences in this forum topic:
- Does the military (state or non-state militaries) visit schools, colleges, universities, or other educational institutions? What activities they carry out? Do they exert an influence in other ways (eg by providing resources, bursaries/scholarships, promoting a military ethos in education)
- Have you done anything to challenge the presence of military in your educational system? What has been successful? What have been the challenges?
- How have you involved – or how could you involve - the wider community (such as students, teachers, parents and grandparents) in this struggle,? Who are your potential allies, and what are the best ways to form these alliances?
