Of Students To Be Examined

A sweeping report that blames'
a large part of the high school
dropout problem on American
school systems themselves, with
particular reference to the Ann
Arbor school system, has been
drawn up by two faculty members
at the University school of social
The report, based on a three-
year study of Ann Arbor High
School and four other southeast-
ern Michigan schools, also states
that there tends to be a dispro-
portionate number of working-
class Negro boys in non-college-
preparatory courses among those
who fail to complete high school.
The study, conducted by Dr.
Robert D. Vinter, associate dean
of the school of social work, Dr.
Rosemary C. Sarri, associate pro-
fessor of social work, and a- large
research team, was financed by
the President's Committee on Ju-
venile Delinquency and the U.S.
Department of Health, Education
and Welfare.
The Vinter-Sarri report finds
that Ann Arbor High School has
a dropout rate of about 13 per cent
when computed on a cumulative
basis. High school officials, us-
ing an annual basis, report a drop-
out rate of 3 to 5 per cent.
The report says the schools stud-
led tend to favor white, middle-
class students enrolled in the col-
lege-preparatory curriculum, with
obstacles built into . the system
for students in other categories.
"The term dropout might often
be changed to pushout," Vinter
said. "In most cases our study
showed that various aspects of
the school system itself, rather
than any qualities inherent in the
students, were the chief factors
causing students to leave high

Dr. Sarri noted "a strong ten-
dency by teachers, counselors and
administrators to regard students
from working-class homes as less
capable than students from upper
and middle-class backgrounds.
This results in a disproportionate
number of working-class students
being placed in the various non-
college-preparatory curricula, re-
gardless of their I.Q. scores, read-
ing abilities as reflected on tests,
or other objective criteria. The
general student starts discouraged.
"Once in the general curricu-
lum, the students are further dis-
couraged by the discovery that
different grading standards exist

of middle-class parents who take
the trouble to talk to officials if
their children are classified in the
lower curriculum. Working-class
parents and students are often
advised out of the upper curric-
ulun, whereas middle-class par-
ents tend to be far more success-
ful in getting their children reclas-
Dr. Sarri pointed out that this
difficulty had no relation to I.Q.
or to the students' objectively
measured abilities.
"The secondary school, unlike
the university, feels it has a so-
cial control responsibility as well
as an educational responsibility,"

among the curricula, with teach- she said. "Since working-class stu-
ers and administrators applying dents are assumed by school per-

and I request them to proceed with
designation of advisory student
committees to the President and
the Vice Presidents as approved
by the Regents on October 21.
The second area concerns the
inherent responsibility - of the
Regents and the University ad-
ministration, faculty, and student
body to see to it that normal and
orderly operations of the Univer-
sity are not disrupted.
It is not a new policy to state
that disruptive demonstrations are
not acceptable methods for ex-
pressing protest and dissent in a
University. This is accepted by all
of us as basic and fundamental to
the operation of a University.
It is unfortunate that the re-
statement of this point as a re-
minder to a few of our over-
zealous students, teaching fellows,
and hon-students became en-
tangled with the separate problem
of procedures, and that the com-
munication of the Vice President
for Student Affairs came through
to the University community as a
statement of a new policy, sup-
ported by a new set of rules and
regulations that had not received
adequate discussion.
This was not the intent, and the
Vice President for Student Affairs
will delay the implementation of
new rules and regulations pending
full understanding and re-ex-
The general policy against dis-
ruption of the University cannot
be abrogated. This is a constitu-
tional responsibility of the Regents
of the University.

Because of the rather wide-
spread misunderstanding on these
points and issues, I am establish-'
ing a Review Committee, repre-
senting students, faculty, and ad-
ministration, to consider this mat-
ter and make recommendations
upon which wise and proper pro-
cedures can be based.
Again, I will ask for recom-
mendations from duly constituted
representative bodies within the
University of persons to serve cn
this committee, and will shortly
announce its membership.
The third area of aggravation
concerns the draft, embroiled as
it is in the larger issues of N iet
Nam. There are questions about
the responsibilities of the Univer-
sity to students who request class
ranking of male students to aid
Selective Service in its difficult
task of determining deferments.
The issue of class ranking is
separate from that of grading,
which is under the jurisdiction
of the faculties of the schools and
colleges. It should be reiterated
that, at the specific request of
6,293 students, the University has
agreed to compute class rank for
the current academic period. This
will be done next May. The Uni-
versity is obligated to these stu-
dents, some of whom may be de-
pending upon class rank as the
means of supporting their defer-
ment requests. Selective Service
Boards are accepting either class
rank or results of the Selective
Service Qualification Test as the
criterion for determining classifi-

cation. Another test will not be'
held until next spring.
Again, the University has no
position on this issue except that
of serving the best interests of its
students. The whole problem of
Selective Service is under review
