Abstract : The thesis examines the feasibility of several methods for providing remedial high school level education to Marine Corps enlisted personnel. It includes a review of recent Marine Corps enlistment experience and the serviceman's need for education. Also considered are the congressional and Marine Corps requirements for servicemen to possess a high school education and the present provisions which allow completion of secondary schooling, with emphasis on the Predischarge Education Program (PREP). This precedes an analysis of alternative methods for providing this education with a view toward expected costs and benefits. (Modified author abstract)
