Vets use new GI Bill for job skills

On Community College Spotlight:  Most veterans using the new GI Bill choose for-profit and community colleges, apparently seeking job training rather than bachelor’s degrees. Online learning is popular too. Senate Democrats aren’t happy that so many are opting for higher-cost for-profit college programs.

  1. I’ve observed that for-profit schools recruit very heavily on military bases and a big part of their appeal is the promise of flexibility & academic credit for previous military training. Are these schools the best use of taxpayer resources? Probably not. But that’s not the primary concern of the individual servicemembers/veterans.
