PAPER ON SCHOOLS
Says Standard for Entrance to the
Universities Should He
Prof. Shafer spoke on the subject,
“Who Should Go to College, and
Why,” at assembly today.
A large Eastern college, he said,
has changed the requirements, so that
four of the fourteen entrance credits
may be from vocational subjects; such
as commercial studies, agriculture,
carpentry, or manual training, and
domestic science. This was necessary
to adapt the college system to the
high school curricula. The prepara
tory schools now are more a continua
tion of the grades, and they finish
the student’s education rather than
prepare him for college. In agricul
tural regions, the high schools natur
ally become agricultural in their
courses, and the colleges can not shut
their doors on these students.
It is a prevalent fallacy that the
high school education is the founda
tion for college work, when it is intel
ligence that should be the standard.
Too many high school students are
pushed through to college without
adequate competency. This is the rea
son for so many failures among col
lege graduates. The certificate system
of entrance is not a fair test; it is too
easy for those who have been carried
along from grade to grade. A system
of individual questioning would be
