Educating the United States Army.
Anderson, Clinton L.
The United State Army has an education/training strategy that provides the conceptual framework for planning, programming, budgeting, and conducting and/or overseeing all education and training necessary to accomplish its military needs and to care for the human needs of soldiers and their family members. This strategy includes education and training for deployed, contingency, and reenforcing forces; training and education support programs to sustain individual and collective job performance; voluntary self-development for soldiers and adult family members; and schools for Army dependents. This paper reviews the entire spectrum of education and training in the Army and then concentrates on the general education element as adult and continuing education within the U.S. Army. The paper also contains a discussion of challenges and issues facing the broad spectrum of Army education and concludes with some expected trends and developments in education and training as the Army approaches the next century. Statistics on how many and what types of personnel are enrolled in various types of educational programs are included in this report. A 48-item bibliography is also included. (KC)
