How the National Guard Helps with School

If a higher education is what you want, joining the National Guard is a decision you may want to make. This could be your ticket to a college education and a better future.

Many students ask the same question: how am I going to pay for a college education? When you join the National Guard, there are many answers to this common question.

Education Benefits

There are a number of education benefits to consider. While you may not qualify for all of them, your National Guard recruiter can give you advice on whether or not you are eligible.

–  Montgomery GI Bill

– 100% Tuition Assistance

– Army National Guard Kicker

– Post 9/11 GI Bill

– National Guard Scholarships


– Student Loan Repayment Program

Regardless of which one of these programs you turn to, one thing stays the same: you are going to get assistance paying for your college education. With the tuition assistance program, for example, the National Guard will pay 100% of your college tuition and related fees – up to $18,000 over a four year period.

To go along with the cost of tuition, some programs, such as the Montgomery GI Bill, help to pay your monthly expenses. With this, you will receive roughly $300 month over the course of your four year education. Best yet, the money is sent directly to you as opposed to the school. This way you can use it as you see fit.

For more information on education programs and other financial packages, contact your local National Guard recruiter. It is important to know what you qualify for, how much money it will save you, and how to get started.

As you can see, the National Guard puts a lot of time and resources into helping members who are interested in attending school.

I taught Algebra I to a class of 42 and to one of 12. I can asruse you that those students received two different instructional experiences. Both classes were expected to pass an end of the year proficiency test. I continually tell myself that life is not fair, but when it starts to affect the quality of education we are able to deliver to our students, something has to change.Florida, specifically St. Johns County, is forced to keep math class size down, and one of the options being implemented is to hire associate teachers. These teachers will be part-time with no benefits. Several reasons will negatively affect students: 1. Expert teachers will not work for less money with no benefits. 2. A part-time teacher will never be part of the professional community in the school. 3. Students will not relate to or trust a teacher that is not at the school for the entire school day. As a math teacher, I offer tutoring before, during, and after school. This would be impossible if I was only there for a half-day.Government officials need to stop cutting the educational fund and find other ways to balance the states’ budget.
