In 2012, more than $8 billion in government support for eligible veterans was paid out to colleges and universities around the country. You might assume by this staggering number that veterans education is a huge success. But a tuition bill doesn't equal a degree.
Academia attracts few veterans. School officials across the state seem at a loss on how to implement the somewhat vague plan, disinterested in implementation or totally unaware that a plan even exists.
We all have different foundations: A college grad may have invested their time into their education, while a recent veteran may have cultivated their professional background through a cause. It's all about how you use your foundation in your job search and beyond.
