Abstract:

Growth of the Army Pre-discharge Education Program PREP had been a slow and cumbersome process since Public Law 91-219 was passed in 1970. The Academy for Educational Development visited 12 major Army installations in United States and made 22 recommendations for improving the PREP in six major areas i.e., Technology, evaluation and development, relationship between education and the military mission, facilities, management practices and education, and communication across and between levels. Exhibits extract and comment on major provisions of the public law, consolidated all existing PREP documentation, outline a model way to start PREP, and discuss in depth the value of high school equivalency certification.
