ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study of problems of higher education in the U.S. by the author. During the summer of 1930, the author took some courses in the subject at Teachers College, Columbia University. During the fall term he attended lectures at Oxford, England, and later two months at Heidelberg, Germany. Incidentally, he visited Eton College and the Gymnasium at Heidelberg. Later he returned to the U.S. and visited a number of colleges that are experimenting with attempts to improve curriculums and methods of instruction and administration. In the American college of today, a conglomeration of secondary, college and university work is found. The first problem is to distinguish clearly in these three levels and provide for them, each in its proper place, in the institutions. The first great need will be to develop secondary schools that can complete their job. The college should not dominate the whole high school, but the high school should discover and train some its pupils for college.
