Veterans for Career Education: Not All Veterans Support Donna Shalala’s Education Bill (Florida Daily Opinion)
Joshua Browder, U.S. Navy veteran, Florida resident and VCE ambassador joined Michael Dakduk, VCE Marine veteran and VCE co-chair, in authoring an opinion piece on GI Bill® choice in the Florida Daily.
In the oped, they write:
"Veterans have the right to use their earned GI Bill® benefits at the school of their choice. Florida Daily’s article “Veterans Groups, Education Leaders Back Donna Shalala’s Effort to Close GI Benefits Loophole” argues that veterans and education leaders support Rep. Shalala’s bill that would limit veterans’ access to taxpaying schools (read for-profit colleges for those that continue to demonize the sector). But this is not accurate and readers deserve to know the other side of the story. Not all veterans are getting behind a bill that would limit our right to choose which higher education program we can attend."
