This 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. Research in support of this study consisted of a review of applicable public laws and Marine Corps Orders. Personal interviews with administrators of PREP at three major military bases in California provided basic information and statistical data.
