Do you counsel your Soldiers/NCOs about the importance of lifelong leaning by continually seeking civilian education?

Do you do the above and not follow your own advice/counsel?

I think we can all agree that having a college degree is pretty important in this day age, whether you stay in or not. Is anyone else running into the issue of units preaching the importance of college and taking college but gives no time for it? I know I had Soldiers that want to take courses but don't want to do the online option because they learn and retain better in a classroom environment. I think getting an online degree is the only real feasible way to complete college and I try to preach it to my Soldiers. I myself take online courses and have a hard time keeping up with stuff I have to do at work and the stuff I have to do when I get home with the family. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what can be done to help Soldiers get time to do college?


(For my command that might read this, this is just a broad question. I have encountered it before and hear Soldiers talk about it all the time.)
