Military veterans bring value to the classroom
from The Chronicle of Higher Education
Associate professor of visual arts at Fordham University Mark Street writes: "I have followed with interest the national conversation about the important role of colleges in easing the transition of military veterans into the classroom. I applaud efforts like the Post-9/11 GI Bill, the Yellow Ribbon program and a newly formed student-run Armed Forces Group at my own university to help veterans integrate into the academic community and graduate. But I hope those discussions, focused on assisting the vets and worthy as they are, don’t eclipse the value these students bring to higher education."
