Back in 1871 James Burrill
Angell, then University President,
took a walk.

This walk took him to Ann Arbor
high school where his son was a
student. During the course of his
visit, President Angell was sur-
prised to learn of the high quality
of courses being taught.
This knowledge led him to a
revolutionary move. Until that
time, all students entering college
were required to take an entrance
examination.
But President Angell felt that in
view of the superior quality of high
school courses, students with good
grades should be admitted to col-
lege on the strength of their high
school diploma alone.
Eliminated Entrance Exam
Thus, Michigan became the first
state to evaluate high school cur-
riculums and the University was
first inthe nation to admit stu-
dents without an entrance ex-
amination on the basis of their
high school work.
This program of evaluation,
called accreditation, has now
spread to all 48 states. In Michigan,
the accreditation process is hand-
led by the University's Bureau of
School Services.
While accreditation has remain-
ed an important part of the
Bureau's work, the emphasis has
shifted to service.
Prof. John V. Field, instructor
in the journalism department is a
part-time member of the Bureau,
which has seven full-time mem-
bers. Since 1950, he has spent the
first semester of. each school year
traveling throughout the state on
behalf of the Bureau.

TEXTBOOK EVALUATION-Prof. John V. Field, of the journal-
ism department reviews a new high school journalism textbook.
As, a part-time member of the Bureau of School Services, Prof.
Field evaluates journalism texts to assist the Bureau in its high
school accreditation and service program.
"Since accreditation is extra- up of top-echelon University per-
legal," Prof. Field said recently, sonnel.
This committee makes the final
"we only go into a school by invi- decision as to whether the school

works in his area of language arts. at the school Prof. Field and his

tions for which they have been Prof. Field assists in setting up
trained. and improving school newspapers
The reports of the different spe- and other publications courses in
cialists are then forwarded to the journalism, and counseling in
Bureau's executive committee made school public relations.
Prof. Field claims that "most
class A, B, and C schools now have
publications, with many having
them in their curriculum."

which had a course in boat build-
ing since many of the students
eventually worked for thetown's
leading industry, which was boat
building.
He pointed out that the school!
can teach almost any subject it
wishes. The only required subjects
in Michigan is one-half year of
government.
Bureau Can Recommend
Since the work of the Bureau is
extra-legal it can only recommend,
not force, a school to offer a sub-
ject, but can of course recommend
to the executive committee that
accreditation be withheld.
Prof. Field mentioned some of
the disadvantages for a school in
not being accredited. One is the
added difficulty the school's gradu-
ates being admitted to college.
Also, some employers are reluc-
tant to hire students from non-
accredited schools, and parents of
school-age children are sometimes
hesitant to settle in a town with
a non-accredited high school.
Some high schools, however, are
forced to bypass accreditation.
They may find that they lack the
funds to maintain a balanced cur-
riculum. They, of course, have the
right to withdraw from accredita-
tion at any time.
However, about 500 of the ap-
proximately 650 schools in Michi-
gan are accredited.
Prof. Field said "the Bureau
services exist because secondary
schools want them."
