Army JROTC exploding in Lee County high schools

By Andrea Praegitzer

Over a quarter of Lee County high school students enrolled in Army JROTC programs this year – making it the second largest program in the nation under only Chicago Public Schools. Lee County likely has the highest percentage of student participation in Army JROTC programs of anywhere in the United States after growing by 48-percent in the past five years with no end in sight.
