Veterans Training Program in Texas Shuts Down Abruptly

The Department of Veterans Affairs has abruptly revoked a Garland, Texas vocational training school’s ability to enroll veterans through the G.I. Bill, halting classes and sending as many as 300 students home with less than half of their training program completed.

The VA confirmed to WFAA Thursday afternoon that the Texas Veterans Commission Education Program has withdrawn approval of the Retail Ready Career Center in Garland to train G.I. Bill beneficiaries. As a result, those students “will no longer receive G.I. Bill benefits at the school, and any future certification of G.I. Bill students is prohibited.”
