Veterans for Career Education Responds to Rep. Shalala's Bill Limiting Education Choice for Veterans
Michael Dakduk, Co-Chair of Veterans for Career Education, responded to legislation released by Rep. Donna Shalala (D-FL) that would limit veterans access to higher education:
“We’ve seen proposals to manipulate the 90/10 rule and change it to an 85/15 ratio. Rep. Shalala now says take it down to 80/20. Two Democrat candidates for president are calling for cutting off career schools from serving veterans on the GI Bill® altogether. It will never be enough for critics of taxpaying career schools.
“The real travesty is how the credentials being earned by veterans at career schools are being labeled worthless as proposals on the 90/10 rule continue to be debated. Fortunately, veterans at career schools are fighting back by telling politicians to respect their choice of school and program of study.”
