Description

Excerpt from Bulletin, Sweet Briar College, Sweet Briar, Virginia, Vol. 9: The Inauguration of Meta Glass as President of the College; November, 1925 In the case of men, education has so won its way that it may almost be said to be the religion of our democracy. Ideas as to the sort of education that is best and the best methods of getting results change; but the belief that it is desirable for the individual and for society that every man Shall train to the highest degree all of his talents has won triumphant acceptance. Does this idea of the value of education hold in the case Of women? Is it true that the public - including woman herself likes a woman better or values her more highly because she is the sort that we call well educated? We shall have to face this ques tion squarely before we can make headway in standardizing our colleges. We shall have to discover frankly how nearly we con sider our girls equal to our men as free individual agents, worthy Of the freedom of a liberal education, before we can make our instruments of education equal.
