Feasibility of Marine Corps Providing Remedial High School Level Education for Enlistees.
Shillinglaw, James Stuart
The thesis examines the feasibility of several methods for providing remedial high school level education to Marine Corps enlisted personnel. It includes a review of recent Marine Corps enlistment experience and the serviceman's need for education. Also considered are the congressional and Marine Corps requirements for servicemen to process a high school education and the present provisions which allow completion of secondary schooling, with emphasis on the Predischarge Education Program (PREP). This precedes an analysis of alternative methods for providing this education with a view toward expected costs and benefits. Research in support of this study consists of a review of applicable public laws and Marine Corps Orders. Personal interviews with administrators of PREP at three major military bases in California provided basic information and data. (Author)
