Excerpt from Popular Errors Concerning Higher Education in the United States and the Remedy In this eminently practical age there is toleration and place for the theorist apart from the practitioner, for the visionary or enthusiast apart from the utilitarian, for the critic apart from the instructor, or for the faultfinder apart from the adviser. All questions of social, civil, religious, business, or educational ecomy and polity are discussed in the broad light of historical truth, of human experience, of intelligent observation, and of well-founded judgment. Accordingly, statesmen and educators are applying themelves with due care and diligence to investigations into the educational history and experience t only of their own, but of all, countries. Educational systems, methods, management, and support are studied in order that the fruits of experience may be enjoyed, and its mistakes avoided or corrected. Perhaps phase or department of education in the United States at present claims the attention of the educated public with more earnestness and interest, than that of the higher education, whether it be offered in a college, a so-called university, or a university proper. The evidences of this widespead interest are ticeable even to the most careless student of college history and to the most casual observer of college administration.
