Airman on the Street: What is your opinion on the changes to Military Tuition Assistance?

"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.
