Ask about anybody leaving the service what they’d like next, and the answer is usually, “a good job.” Education will help get them there, and a meeting this summer with Army University and representatives from academia and industry looked at ways to harness competency-based learning as a way to take advantage of the military training that vets have already had.
Here’s a look at some of our coverage from June’s two-day symposium in Kansas City:
Lumina Foundation is an independent, private foundation in Indianapolis that is committed
to making opportunities for learning beyond high school available to all. We envision a system
that is easy to navigate, delivers fair results, and meets the nation’s need for talent through a
broad range of credentials. Our goal is to prepare people for informed citizenship and for success in a global economy.
