The scholam progenium are the schools in which the children of those who die in imperial service are educated .

As far as i can work out from the fluff these schools provide all commisars, storm troopers, soritas's, and arbites . This started out as a good idea to give stormtroopers a bit of identity in second ed, but these days becoming a member of a good portion of the forces of humanity seems to be dependent on ones parents being martyred!

Am i missing something? Is the fluff putting stress on the suspension of disbelief once more . Is the Scholam Progenium open to Imperial families who merely want their children to serve with unswerving loyalty, and all that one families death ensures is a guaranteed scholarship???Or is having cadavers in ones imediate family an absolute entry requirement?
