Education of Military Dependent Students : Select Assessments Hardback
Edited by Hernick A. Demello
Many families struggle to balance their job demands with ensuring that their children have access to a high-quality education, and for military families this struggle can be exacerbated by the highly mobile nature of their service.
Family concerns about education affect readiness and retention of military personnel, according to the Department of Defense (DOD).
The majority of children of military families in the United States attend public schools.
A 2008 DOD study recommended offering military families a public charter school option in areas with poorly-performing local schools.
This book examines the guidance needed for military base schools on start-up and operational issues; a review of charter schools on military installations; and a study recommending better oversight to improve services for military dependent students with special needs.
