Abstract : In 1983, the National Commission on Excellence in Education's Report, A Nation at Risk: The Imperative For Education Reform, confirmed the public perception that something is wrong with the nation's education system. AMERICA 2000 with six national educational goals is President Bush's strategy to transform America's education system. Implementation of the plan will have a beneficial influence on Department of Defense recruiting and training. Recruiters will have a higher quality applicant pool. Training managers should see reduced attrition rates and more efficient use of training time. The military will feel the biggest impact when it transitions to a train before buy system. In train before buy the military satisfies its needs by recruiting fully trained individuals. This is essential in an era when a reduced force size dictates that all the services examine the ratio between training and operational requirements.
