Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Explaining why the attempts to reform the Japanese educational system have failed, this book argues that the lessons learned from this failure have a wider relevance in the Japanese policy-making process as a whole.

Synopsis:

The Japanese education system, while widely praised in western countries, is subject to heavy criticism within Japan. Education Reform in Japan analyses this criticism, and explains why proposed reforms have failed. The author shows how the Japanese policy-making process can become paralysed when there is disagreement, and argues that this immobilism' can affect other areas of Japanese policy-making.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 300-311) and index.
