The Case for Establishing Improved in-Service Educational Opportunities for the Volunteer Army Enlisted Man.
Dawson, Wallace H., III
The basic questions are what should be the Army's role in enlisted education programs at the high school level and what curriculum considerations are required to support the enlisted man from a service retention standpoint. For many years the Army has administered on-duty and off-duty education programs that instead of being geared to equipping and motivating desirable personnel to remain in the service for a career seem to prepare men for civilian life. Project PREP is starting to move in the direction of fostering the retention of selected personnel who can be career motivated. (Author)
