The book will certainly get you up to speed on much of the situation at the universities in Japan (and Japan has a very large higher education sector), only dwarfed by the US's (a gas giant of the university universe!).

I think one earlier reviewer gets very near the heart of the matter by: Japanese Education. In Japan, education has traditionally been linked with the ruling class. The link between knowledge and power was established with the early Chinese texts that introduced literacy to Japan.

These texts often discussed Confucian ideas and Buddhist theology. This book illustrates the nature of Japan’s education system and identifies its strengths and weaknesses, as well as the socioeconomic environment surrounding education in contemporary Japanese society. It draws on expertise of academic disciplines and analyzes the educational field in Japan.

This book highlights recent education research on Japan based on sociological and other related approaches to historical developments and accomplishments. Written primarily by members of the Japan Society of Educational Sociology, it brings to light concerns and viewpoints that have grown out of the Japanese educational context.

Japanese education culture. Japan was once known for brutally rigid curricula that pushed students beyond their limits. In recent decades, the Japanese government has begun to move away from this system, placing increased emphasis on creativity, internationalism, and critical thinking in schools.

expenditures are allotted to higher education, but in Japan, the proportion is only 10%. Also, 76% of kindergartens, which are not a part of the compulsory education system in Japan, are in the private sector.

The predominance of the private sector at both ends of the education system is a unique feature of Japanese education. Japan has one of the world's best-educated populations, with % enrollment in compulsory grades and zero illiteracy. While not compulsory, high school (koukou 高校) enrollment is over 96% nationwide and nearly % in the cities.

The high school drop out rate is about 2% and has been : Namiko Abe. What’s more, Japan actually spends less on education than many other developed countries, investing percent of its GDP in education, compared to the OECD average of percent.

The Center for US-Japan Comparative Social Studies () is an Internet-based nonprofit organization.

There are several reliable sources of documented information on the introduction of the model, including the Ministry of Education of Japan, and academic books on education in Japan such as Education Reform in Japan and History of Education in Japan so the idea that the system is the result of US influence and based on the US.

School textbooks in Japan are not written by the Ministry of Education. Instead, the textbooks for all subjects in elementary, and both lower and upper secondary schools are written and published by several major private companies. Education in Japan is compulsory at the elementary and lower secondary levels.

Most students attend public schools through the lower secondary level, but private education is popular at the upper secondary and university levels. Education prior to elementary school is provided at kindergartens and day-care centers.
