Report of Educational Testing Service, Princeton University, on Educational Assistance Programs for Veterans. A Comparative Study of Three GI Bills.
Veterans Administration, Washington, DC.
The purpose of the study was to compare the operation of the post-Korean conflict program of educational assistance currently being carried out by the Veterans Administration with similar programs and educational assistance that the Veterans Administration made available to veterans of World War II and the Korean conflict. The highlights of the study's findings deal with: (1) the scope and quality of the educational and training programs; (2) the degree of veterans participation in the programs; (3) the adequacy of the program benefits to veterans, educational and training institutions, work force, and American society; (4) the available information and outreach efforts to meet the various educational and training needs of eligible veterans; (5) the nature and degree of abuse in the programs and the effectiveness of the safeguards established; and (6) the execution and administration of the educational and training programs. Within this scope, some of the topics treated include: an overview of the three GI Bills, comparability and adequacy of benefit levels, changing characteristics of veterans, disadvantaged and black veterans, public attitudes, participation rates, nondegree educational programs, informing and counseling the veteran, and administration of benefits. A 41-page bibliography, comparability tables, and a California study are appended. (Author/MW)
