Japanese Education - 49809 - SOC 2130 - 802
CL: ASST 2000 (802). Topical Course Description: A key aspect of the country’s Post-War economic miracle, Japan’s education system has served as a model for emerging economies not only in Asia but also globally. Japan’s learners regularly score high on international measures of math and science literacy. However, in recent years the education system has withered criticism for pedagogic and systemic failings that have led to declines in quality. Like many countries, growing income inequality and insufficient public financing have affected education opportunity and outcomes. Education policymaking has also been slow to respond to changes in labor demand. Finally, the system has been accused of producing apathetic adults with little sense of community or national pride. This course examines the historical circumstances that gave rise to modern education practice in Japan as well as current practice. The course explores related issues as way to reflect not only on solutions but also on the role that education plays in all societies. A mixture of lecture and discussion, the course will also provide practical opportunities for students to research topics on their own.
