The article focuses on the U.S. Navy's institutional tendency to undervalue formal military education. It is a cultural issue that can only be overcome by a change in that service's educational processes and officer career progression. Considering the challenges that face the nation today and the expanding responsibilities of military officers, access to high quality education should be expanded, not reduced. The Navy will not be able to increase the effectiveness of its leaders by curtailing their educational opportunities or thinking that on-line education supplements can replace more rigorous and interactive resident courses of instructions. The Navy needs to address the systemic, procedural and cultural impediments to the fulfillment of joint education.
