Description

The National Journal reports how "a shortfall in recruiting has prompted the Pentagon and Congress to look at radical changes designed to make the GI Bill a better deal for troops. Fifty-five years after the World War II bill, 15 years after the Montgomery GI Bill, the very trends the military and Congress helped set in motion - mass access to college, continuing adult education, financial aid from employers - have spread so far as to undermine the GI Bill's fundamental assumption: that most high school graduates can't go on to college without the military's help."
