General Accounting Office, Washington, DC. National Security and International Affairs Div.
This report presents a summary status of the National War College's implementation of 41 selected recommendations contained in the April 1989 report of the Panel on Military Education. These recommendations are designed to assist the Department of Defense in improving its officer professional military education programs. It reports that of the Panel's 41 recommendations pertaining to the college, actions have been taken to implement all of them and 32, or 78 percent, have been fully implemented; 4 are partially implemented; and 5 cover areas that are not fully within the college's control. The appendix presents the recommendations along with a characterization of their implementation. It also provides additional details on the college's actions for each recommendation. The Panel's recommendations address the following areas: (1) faculty teaching strategy; (2) faculty qualifications, and student/faculty ratios; (3) student selection; (4) faculty recruitment; (5) faculty development program; (6) incentives to hire civilian faculty; (7) faculty exchange with academies; (8) military student qualifications; and (9) the environment for joint education. Recommendations appear exactly as they appear in the Panel report, and, in most cases, college officials have addressed the entire recommendation. Recommendations whose implementation is not fully within the college's control are identified. In addition, cross-references to related recommendations are provided when responses are similar. (GLR)
