EVOCATI CLIENT VETERANS EDUCATION SUCCESS RELEASES GROUND BREAKING NEW REPORT
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Veterans Education Success, a nonprofit that serves the military-connected community and client of Evocati, released a new report titled, Should Colleges Spend the GI Bill on Veterans’ Education or Late Night TV Ads? highlighting the best and worst performing schools that spend taxpayer funds on academic instruction.
The amount of tuition and fees spent on academic instruction are a key indicator of student success. VES used publicly available federal data to analyze investment of GI Bill dollars into academic instruction. Among the report’s findings were that seven of the 10 colleges receiving the most GI Bill benefits spent less than one-third of tuition and fees on academic instruction in 2017.
The report is available here and was released April 18, 2019, in a panel discussion on Capitol Hill with contributions from Third Way and The Century Foundation. Third Way published policy recommendations for how lawmakers can use instructional spending as a measure to gauge taxpayers’ return on investment. The Century Foundation created a searchable database for individuals to learn what percent of earned tuition and fees a school spent on academic instruction.
