KIRKUS REVIEW

The former president of Swarthmore College and an outstanding educator here surveys the honor plans in various colleges and universities by which students of unusual ability can progress as far -- and as fast -- as they can go. This is one means by which the lockstep of the average, of standardized education, is broken. The plan at Oxford, his own inauguration of honors at Swarthmore, its variations the country over, full time and part time; the tutorial and seminar study approach, methods of examination, administrative and financial considerations, the first two years of college and sectioning of students according to ability, graduate study, etc. Not for laymen.
