Jamie Schwandt, Grading the Army’s Staff College

After receiving his grades from the Army’s Command and General Staff College, Major Jamie Schwandt decided to assign his own grades for the instructors and the institution itself. He did not paint a flattering portrait of the school. He took issue with the school’s leadership, the course content, and even the method of taking attendance. When he published his assessment, the blog provoked a vigorous online debate. Many people agreed with his views, but at least as many came to the defense of the school and the Army’s education system.
