CHAPTER 1 : THE PROBLEM AND IT’S BACKGROUND

I. INTRODUCTION

Probably not everyone knows the word ROTC or Reserve Officer Training Corps. It is a college

program offered at more than 1,700 colleges and universities across the United States that

prepares young adults to become officers in the U.S. Military. The purpose of the Army ROTC is

to prepare students for commissioning as officers in the Active Army, Army Reserve, or Army

National Guard. The overall program is designed to aid students in developing the abilities and

attitudes that will make them academically successful and to develop well educated junior

officers.

According to the House Bill (HB) 8961 the conduct of military training under ROTC "shall

apply to all students in Grades 11 and 12 in all senior high schools in public and private

educational institutions." This means the military training would be required for both male and

female students. The goal behind the proposed two-year mandatory ROTC is "producing well-

trained and prepared reservists for military and civic service."

"The ROTC training is aimed to instill patriotism, love of country, moral and spiritual virtues,

and respect for human rights and adherence to the Constitution," states HB 8961. But the bill

also says "in no way should the ROTC be used for political gains, to teach and instill particular

ideology, and as a mechanism for hazing and abuse."

This researchers aimed to find out the effect of the mandatory ROTC to the Academic

performance of the grade 12 students of New Era University.
