THE MICHIGAN DAILY WEDNESDAY
Michigan Is One Of First To
Give Admission By Certilcate
The University of Michigan was one
of the first, if not the first, of the
large universities to admit students
from high schools on certificates, ac-
cording to Dr. George E. Carrothers
of the bureau of co-operation with
It was President Frieze who, in
1871, conceived the idea of visiting
the secondary schools of this and
neighboring states to determine the
quality of work done in the schools
and also to inspect their methods of
teaching, Dr. Carrothers said.
As time went on, certain definite
standards were set up for the guid-
ance of the University inspectors who
also worked in co-operation with sec-
ondary school administrators and
teachers in the development of more
efficient schools. Later, this work
was organized under a division of
university inspection of high schools
with a director in charge.
Two Organizations Merge
In 1919 the State Department of
Public Instruction and the University
began working together in the visit-
ing and inspection of secondary
schools and in the exchange of re-
ports. Until that time the work of
the two organizations in this respect
had overlapped. The change of pol-
icy had an added advantage in that
it gave high school principals a
chance to talk over their problems
with men from the State department
as well as with those from the Uni-
At the present time, this co-opera-
tion not only to public high schools,
but to private and parochial secon-
dary schools as well.

division, changes and additions have
been made to make it more efficient.

ganized to take care of work in con-
nection with junior colleges. Its

purpose is to visit both colleges and
junior colleges in this and other
states on the request of the institu-
tions themselves and to aid them in"
perfecting their educational system.
If it is requested, the University com-
mittee will consider the reports of the,
college visitors and then render a re-
port to the head of the institution.
Report Compliments System
In a report published several years
ago by the department of superinten-
dence of the National Education As-
sociation a highly complimentary
pargraph appeared on the Michigan
system of co-operation with secon-
dary schools. The bureau of co-op-
eration with educational institutions
has now replaced the division of uni-
versity inspection of high schools and
is continuing the work of developing
a harmonious working relationship
among the schools of the State.
