Higher Education in Paris

Article metrics


THE report of the Senate of the University of Paris, drawn up by Prof. Moissan, and presented to the Minister of Public Instruction in December last, gives abundant evidence of the excellent provision for higher education in Paris. It is gratifying to observe the importance attached, by State authorities in France, to the opinions held by eminent men of science on the subject of education. The record of a splendid year's work which is here brought together is proof enough, were any needed, that nothing but good can result when men distinguished in science exert their influence on Councils responsible for the administration of education.
