Military Tuition Assistance Cut

“Higher education’s for-profit sector may be hit especially hard as a result of the program suspensions because of the colleges’ vigorous recruitment of members of the armed forces and veterans. For-profit colleges received more than half of the $563-million in Department of Defense tuition assistance paid to active-duty service members in the 2011 fiscal year, said a report last year by the Senate education committee.

The Marine Corps, which made its announcement on March 2, and the Army said they would not accept new enrollments in their Tuition Assistance Programs, which provide financial support for active-duty troops who are attending high-school-completion courses and certificate programs or working toward college degrees. Under the programs, participants can receive up to $4,500 per fiscal year.”

The above news is disheartening. We are asking for those that defend our freedom to accept some of the first cuts in the Sequester. Our Military has evolved over the years. Today, we are volunteer. Today, we have the opportunity to provide on-line education during their service.

There are better ways to begin to trim the budget.  The decisions to begin with Military TA cuts is wrong.
