From The San Francisco Chronicle: After three years of debate and back-and-forth votes, the San Francisco school board has reinstated the Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps. The vote restores the program to nearly its original condition before the 2006 effort to kill it. The board decided to allow the JROTC program to satisfy physical education requirements--something needed to maintain enrollment numbers that make the program at seven district high schools financially viable. A 2006 board vote called for the district to phase out the military leadership training program, and another voted in 2008 ended the practice of giving participating students P.E. credit.
