Remarks Before The American Association of Junior Colleges.
Boatwright, Linton S.
This speech contains information concerning the present and planned higher education facilities in the U.S. Army. The major point presented is that educational opportunity should be moved from a peripheral to a more integral part of a soldier's life by developing and instituting an educational system that provides each soldier with the opportunity to acquire, on duty time, civilian- recognized skills or education. The following goals have been established for education within the Army: (1) All commissioned officers are to have baccalaureate degrees and 20 percent of all career commissioned officers are to have graduate degrees. (2) All career warrant officers are to have associate degrees before they reach 15 years' service. (3) All enlisted men are to have a high school education as soon as possible after entering the service, and career N.C.O's are encouraged to complete 2 years' college equivalent study before reaching 15 years' service. Suggestions for implementing these programs are made with recognition of the problems to be encountered. (HS)
