The third chapter details the social and historical contexts of Milton High School that gave rise to its Homeland Security program. Based on Milton’s earlier school reform efforts aimed at preparing poor and working class youth of color for the technical workforce, the school eventually narrowed its focus to issues of, and jobs related to, national security.
