The problems of this thesis are three-fold:

  1. To familiarize administrators and citizens with the problems and needs of accreditation to the extent that these problems become axiomatic,
  2. To determine who does the accreditation and how comprehensively is it done,
  3. To revise the present state form used for accreditation of Kentucky schools by comparison with other state-accrediting forms.
