Teachers back cadet forces in schools

Teachers from the union Voice have backed the setting up of cadet forces in state schools to "improve discipline". The motion to back them was made at their conference today. The cadet forces are sponsored by the MOD to train children in first aid and military skills though there isn't a chance the cadets can be called up to fight. No doubt the MOD hope and expect quite a lot would consider a career in the armed forces of course. 130,000 school children are cadets in the UK.
