| The Other Pipeline: Tracking Working Class
Youth into the Military
Thursday | April 15 | 4:30-6pm
Access to higher education becomes limited to a
few, the majority of working class
youth face a future of low paying jobs,
the military. Military recruiters are adept to
product in what is most often a deceptive package;
many of the promises made
are never kept and young people find that
they have signed up for something
they never expected. According to
the Pentagon's own studies, most youth enlist
for the promised
educational benefits. As one character in the movie "Jarhead"
when asked why he joined the Marines: "I got lost on my way to
college." Professor Jorge Mariscal will be talking about recruiting
and what you can do to demilitarize our schools.

tied to it. Dr. Fatima El Tayeb of Literature will speak about her
research in the area of Whiteness in a European context. This will be a
