Former U.S. Representative Reyes: Preserve the Good For-Profit Schools
Silvestre Reyes was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from 1997 to 2013 representing Texas’s 16th district. He writes in this blog post for The Hill that Congress should not be eager to throw the baby out with the bathwater, so to speak, when it comes to for-profit universities.
Reyes, a U.S. Army veteran who was wounded in the Vietnam War, believes that access to good for-profit schools, such as American Military University, is a benefit to current and former military personnel looking to expand their education:
We Are Military- And Veteran-Friendly
American Military University (AMU) has service members and veterans studying with us around the world, supported by a vast array of staff and faculty who are also veterans. As a result, AMU truly understands the specific needs of our country’s veterans. To support you, we have dedicated advisors skilled at addressing the questions veterans face when enrolling in school, such as how to utilize benefits for financial aid. And, if you are a veteran with a disability, you are not alone. AMU has staff trained at empowering our disabled veteran students to succeed.
