Summary
Education and Equality in Japan draws attention to the relationship between social equality and educational goals and practices in Japan, and raises some interesting questions concerning the relationship between educational systems, social structure, and ideology. The author examines the role education plays in Japanese society, the modes of teaching and learning employed in schools and homes, and presents a portrait of contemporary Japanese social structure which he claims has been transformed by the emphasis on equality in postwar education. The book aims to demonstrate that universal schooling, created in the Meiji period as the means for economic and social development, has emerged in the postwar years as the means for social equality
