A charter high school in Wilmington, Del., will be the first to train its students to become part of Homeland Security. The Delaware Academy for Public Safety and Security will train as many as 600 of Wilmington’s inner-city youth in areas such as prison guarding, professional demolition, and special weapons. Cadets, as they will be called, will learn Arabic, Chinese, or Russian as part of the curriculum.

But a concerned ParentDish blogger who says the move is “reminiscent of the Hitler-Jugend,” is not convinced.

Maybe this will turn out to be the best thing since sliced bread … [but]…It just seems a little too familiar.
