Ethics of teaching the military in Saudi Arabia

Unread post by tenneray » 20 Sep 2018, 02:02

The Saudi armed forces have been fighting a brutal war in neighboring Yemen for the last several years. The war has caused countless civilian casualties as well as disease and famine. The Saudi officers in charge of this war are taught by American teachers at Vinnell and other companies. Therefore, some prospective teachers may choose to avoid military contracts for humanitarian reasons. Sadly, few Americans are aware of this disastrous conflict and their country's role in it.
