The adage "EDUCATION IS FUNDAMENTAL" is important to our nation as a whole. Just read any text on Outsourcing (e.g. The World is Flat, Post American World, etc), which explains how India, China, and a half dozens other countries will lead the world in terms of the amounts of graduate students with nation building skills (math and science). Remember, education is a major vehicle to remain competitive and tuition assistance for government empoyees with children would provide an improved compensation package to people who have already demonstrated a unparalleled level of dedication to America in order to increase competitiveness.
The alternative is to let graduates from elsewhere take the helm and lead you and I into the future. You decide. CLICK AGREE FOR TUITION ASSISTANCE!
