Requires Much Help
The growth of .the number of ac-
credited schools which have to be re-
inspected every one, two, or three
years according to their standing, has
been so rapid in late years that the
work of examining now has to be done
by a large committee besides the Uni-
versity's regular inspector, Prof. J. B.
Edmonson, who is on the inspection
tour during the entire second semester.
This year's committee includes the
following: Profs. L. M. Gram, M. P.

The University of Michigan was the
first higher institution in the United
States to accredit high schools, the
recommended graduates of which are
received into the University without
entrance examination. The accrediting
plan had its origin in a resolution
adopted by the University faculty in
1871, and confirmed by the Board of
Regents the following year. The cred-
it for suggesting the idea belongs to
President Henry S. Frieze who was at
that time acting president. But the
principal work of developing and per-
fecting the plan was done under the
direction of President James B. An-
System of Great Value
President Angell once said in dis-
cussing the origin and purpose of the
accrediting system, "Perhaps in noth-
ing has the University been more use-
ful to the educational system of the
state than in the cultivation of the
friendly relation with the schools by
the introduction of the diploma system
of admission of students."
In the early beginnings of the sys-
tem atcommittee of the faculty, upon
special invitation of superintendents
and boards of education, annually vis-
ited the high schools desiring the ac-
credited relation with the University.
The findings of this committee were
reported to the faculty, and the deci-
sions of that body determined the re-
lationship between each individual
high school and the University.
Special Office Created
In 1893 the number of schools de-
siring to affiliate ,with the University
had become so large that a standing
committee of the faculty was appoint-
ed to pass on all questions involving
relationship with secondary schools. In
1899 a special office was created to
have charge of the inspection, and
Prof. A. S. Whitney was appointed first
inspector of schools. In 1917 the Uni-
versity and the State Department of
Public Instruction entered into an ar-
rangement providing for an exchange
of report on public high schools de-
siring both the tuition privilege from
the state department an accrediting
by the University.
The standards for the accredited
schools have always been stated in
minimum terms and have been so
framed as to enable thetypical three-
teacher high school to secure recogni-
tion. As a result of this liberal pol-
icy nearly all of the three-teacher high
schools in the state are now on the
accredited list, ad many of the small-
er schools are so shaping their poli-
cies as to secure aproval as soon as
their teaching force meet the required
32 Schools on List
The growth of the number of ac-
credited schools has been very no-
ticeable, especially since the year 1905,
and there are now 320 schools on the
accredited list of which 285 are pub-
lie high schools and 35 are either pri-
vate or parochial schools. More than
99 per cent of the freshmen taken in-
to the University enter under this ac-
credited system, according to Registrar
Arthur G. Hall.
A large number of Michigan high
schols in addition to being accredited
by the University, are also recognized
by the North Central association of
colleges and secondary schools.*'ol-
leges and universities belonging to
this association interchange their re-
spective state lists, and in this way.
graduates of high schools recognized
.by one of these states are also ac-
credited by the others.
