With more than $10 billion being spent this year educating troops and veterans, the order has been given: help them graduate. But how?
“'There is very little data as relates to persistence and completion for veterans,' said Bryan J. Cook, director of the Center for Policy Analysis at the American Council on Education. 'The primary source of data for all students is one that looks at a small sample of first-time, full-time students, a group which most veterans do not fall into.'
That may soon change."
