SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 1915.
Night Editor-Joseph J. Brotherton.
Undoubtedly, some of the rumors
now going the rounds, about whole.
classes being flunked, are without
foundation. One day there is a vague
report-that, say, 20 per cent not passes
have been recorded in a certain law
course, while the announcement is
made, quite unofficially, -that only one
"A" was given in a lit course in which
74 persons were enrolled. These are
but typielal, As for concrete cases,
the rumors usually turn out to be ex-
travagant, but they illustrate the fear
and dread into which the student body
is put by the general policy of tight-
ening up, which seems to be in vogue
just at present.
Now, the obvious object of a general
lowering of marks is to better schol-
arship. This is a worthy cause, espe-
cially in departments where the Mich-
igan standard is not relatively high.
But too much dependence is being put
- on the effect which extended flunking
will have. If the teaching is so at
fault in some courses that the stu-
dent can learn but little, it is difficult
r to see how the standard of scholarship
can be improved by spreading out a
certain proportion of marks, or a pre-
sci'bed number of not passes, over the
class roll. The revised marking sys-
tem has some benefits, but it muust not
be relied on to perform the miracle of
imparting knowledge, which is the us-
ual function of teaching.
Someone might suggest that a com-
pulsory course in sidewalk drainage
be offered for Ann Arbor residents.
