Today's Editorial ABOUT THE HONOR SYSTEM [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 10 January 1940
Today's Editorial ABOUT THE HONOR SYSTEM TTONOR systems can be made a success. Practical application of the principles of this system are in evidence at Hiram, Oberlin and other colleges. Students at these institutions vouch for the practicability of this plan. Before such a system can succeed, however, knowledge of just what an honor system requires should be possessed. The points that go to make the honor system desirable must be known. An honor system, ordinarily, involves four provisions: First, all tests are given without the presence and supervision of any professor or instructor.

Any cases found by the class will be reported. This also includes the...

Upon evincing a desire to study Greek drama she was regarded with a startled look of tolerant amusement and kindly advised that Principles of Salesmanship would prove of far greater utility. Anyway, there was no Greek on the curriculum. She learned also that there were "too many people leaving college without training to do any particular work;" that the old impractical curriculi are being superseded by edu...
