4 Facts About Student VeteransFebruary 28, 2017 | :
by Barrett Y. Bogue
The popular myth that student veterans don’t perform well doesn’t stand up to the facts.
We took Fallujah. We know more than a decade of war. Why then do so many articles bemoan the challenges veterans face attending college? Veterans are completing tougher degrees with higher grades at better colleges than many might guess.
Sure, we have all heard stories where veterans were victimized by their school or were misled, but a handful of stories does not a narrative make. It merely perpetuates misconceptions about student veterans in higher education.
