The Unbalanced Two-Step: Standards of Progress for the G. I. Bill.
Arnstein, George
The problem with the G. I. Bill is that some veterans enroll in school, start collecting their monthly stipends, do not attend classes but keep on collecting. The Veterans Administration is trying to protect federal funds and is trying to stop the cheating, but it may not be doing the right thing. The real problem is seen to be more complex, reflecting the whole state of education in that it forces examination of the system of determining progress of a student. Various difficulties in determining such progress are described, including the reliance on class attendance figures. Implications for the colleges themselves are discussed. Similar problems for vocational Schools are addressed. It is concluded that the V.A. is not doing much to advance the cause of education: no research, no new products, no new techniques, and reducing counseling services for veterans. (LBH)
