How to fix the war colleges

Joan Johnson-Freese has a good piece. Among her recommendations:

PME schools cannot overhaul the military retirement system, but they can limit the number of [military] retirees hired onto war college faculties. One possibility would be to limit such hires to a percentage of the total faculty. This would force consideration of hiring retired officers for specialized talents and future potential, and not just for routine tasks with a nod to past rank taken as immediate qualification for the post.
