The White Falcon - 19.11.1971, Blaðsíða 5
G-I Bill info for interest There are more than two mil- lion veterans now in school on the G-I Bill, and there will be more next year. James Taaffe, Director of Edu- cation for the Veterans Admini- stration, says G-I Bill enroll- ment continues to "climb like mad. Every time we look at the enrollment figures, our projec- tions go up." Over 60 percent of those cur- rently enrolled are attending college. But that's only one way to'take advantage of the program. Under the G-I Bill, vets can also draw allowances for vocational or technical schooling; flight training; farm cooperative train- ing; high school and apprentice- ship or on-the-job training in skills like police work, build- ing, electronics and auto mechan- ics. The Veteran's Administration is stressing apprenticeship pro- grams now because it considers hem a good means for cutting own the high unemployment among veterans in the 20 to 29 years of age bracket. High unemployment is one of the three factors that the Administration cites for in- creased G-I Bill enrollment. The other two are: The higher allow- ances voted by Congress in 1970; and a publicity campaign to in- form veterans of all the benefits available to them.
