“I like the new changes. I was a little surprised to see that fitness was a part of the criteria, but if you’re not doing what you’re supposed to do then why should the military par for you to go to school.” - Tech. Sgt. Tiffany Alteri-Brown, 12th Air Force (Air Forces Southern) Command Support Staff
"I really like the portion where the supervisors are required to approve the military tuition assistance because it encourages supervisors to get involved and be aware of what their Airmen are doing. I also appreciate the fact that tuition assistance will be denied to individuals with UIFs, referral EPRs and those on control rosters. Tuition assistance is a benefit and it encourages the Airmen who are consistently doing the right thing to focus on the whole Airman concept." - Master Sgt. Angela Womack, 12th Air Force (Air Forces Southern) First Sergeant.
"I agree with the new changes. It injects the supervisor and the commander into the Airman’s education plan. By doing so the supervisor can provide guidance and advice to their Airman on how their class schedule could affect mission requirements, which will allow the Airman to make an informed decision on class choices. It also makes it clear that tuition assistance is a benefit and not an entitlement and will prevent individuals from taking advantage of the education benefits provided by the military." - Chief Master Sgt. Calvin Williams, 12th Air Force (Air Forces Southern) Command Chief Master Sergeant.
“I think it’s neat and that it holds everyone accountable. You’re not just giving the Air Force nothing and getting something in return, tuition assistance is not an entitlement. It’s going to keep a lot of people who are performing at bare minimum from using it. I like it a lot.” - Senior Airman David Westerman, 12th Air Force (Air Forces Southern) Command Support Staff.
