Michigan State

Education

Old Harvard of Massachusetts stood out isolated and alone. It was not only severed from the general educational outline, but there was neither harmony nor sympathy between them. The defect has for ages retarded the educational outgrowth of the Bay State, and painfully marred the beauty and symmetry of her school system. It has withheld the highest incentive to effort under that system. Not only so, but it has withdrawn from the university its proper measure of prosperity and patronage.
The Michigan pioneers regarded the lesson in the light of history teaching by example. They avoided the defect by amending the plan. Whilst making their university independent in government, they yet brought it in sympathy with, and engrafted it upon their common school system with its graded, union and normal intermediate links. They made it the key-stone of their educational arch. The practical results of the two systems have already passed into history.
