The Air Force Advanced Education System.
Thorne, Carlton Eugene
The report systematizes graduate education in the Air Force and examines all elements of the system as they relate to the system objectives. It covers the establishment of advanced degree requirements, the sources of graduate degrees, and the utilization of advanced degrees. The report contains the annual production of advanced degrees by sources, with emphasis on gains and losses during fiscal year 1969. The factors that affect the retention of officers with advanced degrees are examined. A proposed advanced education model is presented that will incorporate all sources into the system. (Author)
