Military Academies - An answer for trouble familes and failed pupils?

I live in the one of the most deprived wards in a two up two down terrace in one of the most deprived constituencies Hyndburn.

I see every day the issues of youth failure.

Either passive failure or worse, young people who enter the criminal justice system.

Respublica's report on Military Academies is interesting.

I am sure it's emphasis will be about promoting positive self esteem in the most resistant of pupils and engaging in basis life skills.

Those pupil's for whom poor parenting or negative peer pressure or a negative environment leaves schools unable in the few short hours that pupil may be in school, to help that young person.

Unable to help them in life skills that should be taught outside of school.

Morality, personal hygiene and health, self esteem and confidence
