In addition, the prestigious private schools are the least generous with their own school-based incentives, potentially making them even more expensive to support for the Army. Page 26 Summary To recap the evidence in this chapter, prestigious private schools are the only type to display significantly high promotion rates at all grades in the standard 20-year career. S. Congress and probably in many other social leadership roles. Their graduates do supply somewhat less service than other school typesabout a half-year less than public school graduates over the first eight years of an Army career, and about a quarter-year less than other private school graduates.

HBCUs show significantly lower rates of promotion at all levels, compared with public schools. 2 Other Considerations An additional argument has been made, especially in the case of prestigious private schools and prestigious public colleges (such as state flagship campuses). These campuses historically have produced large numbers of graduates who later move into influential positions. This characteristic could benefit the Army in one of two ways. Some number of the ROTC graduates from these institutions might not make the Army a career, but they could assume important positions in society later on.

What is difficult is balancing the costs and value of private school programs, both prestigious and other. We present four basic ways the Army could denominate its scholarships. Three of these are possible today: a single $16,000 cap, two caps of $12,500 and $20,000, and a plan that pays 100 percent at schools up to $12,500 and 80 percent for expensive schools.
