Higher Education is Key to Veterans
Advancing in the Workplace
Every year THOUSANDS of America’s veterans return to school, seeking a college degree to advance their career. Very few would have the opportunity to do so without GI Bill funding that they earned through service to our nation.
But liberal politicians in Washington are now pressuring the Veterans Administration to disqualify dozens of non-profit and for-profit private colleges from accepting GI Bill tuition assistance.
This is a direct assault on the future hopes and dreams of Veterans.
Some colleges don’t conform to the ivory tower education establishment, in fact in many ways they pose a direct threat. These are the schools the Democrats want to shut down.
For years liberal politicians have been trying to shut down career-focused private colleges. These are the schools that concentrate heavily on providing students up-to-date job skills in high-demand industries. These jobs include IT, nursing, lab technicians, mechanics, computer networking, cyber security, construction, and numerous other fields with a high demand for workers.
The liberals are pushing a false campaign that attempts to paint these schools as fundamentally inferior and indifferent about student welfare. They could not be more wrong, and they know it.
- Private career-focused schools remain an extremely popular college option – especially with veterans – filling an important need in higher education for adult learners and people with families
- Because they focus on job training and career-oriented skills, non-traditional schools graduate students faster, at a lower cost, and are frequently superior to traditional schools in their focus on job placement, often approaching 100% in key fields
- Traditional universities have failed to keep up with modern innovations, such as online learning, flexible schedules, rolling admissions, credit for work experience, and tailor-made curricula for individualized attention
If the Democrat agenda succeeds, THOUSANDS of U.S. veterans who want to earn a college degree will be left out in the cold, unable to attend the school that best suits their needs, and fits their schedule.
