GovExec Daily: The Gaps in Veteran Student Data
Wesley Wilson joins the podcast to discuss one way colleges and universities can use information to combat fraud.
June marked the 77th anniversary of the original GI Bill and the thirteenth anniversary of the Post-9/11 GI Bill. Between both, millions of veterans have used the bills’ education benefits to attend college and training programs. Unfortunately, finding education outcomes is difficult and institutions are not required to comprehensively report student veteran data.
Wesley Wilson is an Army veteran, a current student at American University and a senior analyst at Grant Thornton Public Sector LLC. He is also an advocacy fellow with High Ground Veterans Advocacy and former Research Associate at the Institute for Veterans and Military Families. He has a post on GovExec.com headlined "To Combat Fraud, Colleges and Universities Must Report Student Veteran Outcome Data." He joined the show to talk about the gaps in veteran education outcome data.
