Improving Recruitment and Retention: A Road Forward for America’s Military-Connected Families

  • 214 Massachusetts Avenue Northeast Washington, DC, 20002 United States (map)

The U.S. military is pursuing innovative market-based strategies to combat declining recruitment and retention rates. Military personnel cite inadequate education options for their children as a major source of discontent. All too often, military personnel are placed in the impossible situation of choosing between their children’s future and their duty to their country. However, a recent proposal in the House and Senate seeks to alleviate this tension by offering education savings accounts to military-connected children. The new policy would allow parents to tailor their children’s education to their unique needs. These changes are imperative to ensure that the U.S. military remains an effective and ready fighting force.

Please join us for a discussion about the effect of education savings accounts and the future of the U.S. military.
