Servicemembers At Failing For-Profit Schools Not Protected By Veterans Affairs

Plan to use GI Bill for business grants draws criticism
http://www.militarytimes.com/story/veterans/careers/civilian/small-business/2015/08/20/gi-bill-buisiness-grants/32045335/
Some veterans advocates are pushing back against plans to use GI Bill benefits to pay for would-be entrepreneurs' small-business grants, arguing the move confuses the purpose of the education program.
Last month, the Senate Small Business Committee advanced a measure to create a three-year pilot program allowing 250 veterans to use their GI Bill funds as a business start-up grant, rather than for college tuition.
The concept has been floated on Capitol Hill several times since the Post-9/11 GI Bill was launched in 2009. But it has grown in popularity in recent months, and this week was included in presidential hopeful Jeb Bush’s veterans reform platform.
