JROTC Programs sign now

I had noticed something that i found rather odd in the North Carolina school systems and i'm quite sure its happening everywhere but when i was in school we actually had to be weighed in for JROTC. They no longer do that, As a matter of fact they don't even make the kids that are too out of shape run or the ones that are in shape run for that matter if they don't feel like it. I want something done about the way the JROTC programs are being ran because it gives the children that don't meet the requirements to join the military false hope. The way the JROTC programs are being ran give children the impression that joining the military is easy when its anything but. The JROTC programs were originally designed to give the students a feel of what its like to be in the military but now they don't even do that, The only thing they even do that resembles being in the military is wearing their uniforms and they do that one day a week. They have even stopped doing PT according to a lot of the kids that are in the programs which brings me to my next point. Something that has been noticed is that anyone can actually stay in JROTC regardless of their health condition but in reality in the military they wouldn't allow you to stay. You would be kicked out, I'm not saying to kick those out that have conditions that can't be helped but i sincerely think that those that have health problems that can be improved should be kicked out if they don't make an improvement within an appropriate length of time. So basically what i'm trying to say is that the JROTC programs need to majorly improve their guidelines to be more like those of the military because after all that is why it was originally started. If they can't do that, They should do away with the program all together not only in NC but in other states as well because its giving the military a bad name and those who aren't in the military or don't know anything about it a warped view on it. Thanks in advance for those of you who sign.
