Clifford T. McIntyre, '17E, writes onj
"Canadian Education" in the sixth
article of the series of eight about
A comprehensive discussion of Can-
adian education would require more
space than I am afforded and I will
limit myself to a brief discussion of
the standards of Canadian high
schools and universities.
One of the great virtues of Cana-
dian education is its uniformity of
standards. This uniformity is made
possible by our high school systems.
The courses of all secondary schools
are divided into upper and lower
school work. Art, biology, physical
geography, spelling, writing, reading,
and arithmatic must be passed before
the student is allowed to proceed with
upper school work.
The upper school work cannot be:
disposed of in single groups of sub-
jects, but the entire secondary school
course of 12 subjects must be carried
through the last two years with pass-
ing grades. That is, a failure in any
one course requires the repetition of
the entire term's work. Thus every,
student appr'oaches his final examina-
tions on an equal footing with his fel-
The final graduation from the upper;
school subjects is made under the sup-
ervision of the university matricula-
tion board. This board is composed of
representative heads of the various
Canadian universities. It sets, and
controls the examinations on the high-
er subjects, the passing of which
means the graduation from any high
school and the entrance into any un-
iversity in Canada. Michigan and most
American universities accept the pass-
ing of these examinations as credits
for entrance,.without further examin-

The failure of Canadians to realize
that thgre is not this uniformity of
educational standards in the United
States has led to a loss of respect for
American education. The Canadian
student who has been unable to pass
his matriculation into. Canadian
schools is often admitted into Ameri-
can colleges. It is the common opin-
ion in Canada that $100 will buy al-
most any degree in the United States.
The Canadians of Michigan are doing
their best to demand respect for such
institutions as Michigan, but always
find it difficult to explain the com-
plexity of American standards.
Such strict requirements as Can-
ada observes may bar many capable-
students from professional training,
but the advantages of this system ar-
gue strongly for a standardization of
