About this item

Karen L. Riley.

The book Japanese Education Reform: Nakasone's Legacy / Edition 1, by Karen L. Riley, is an in-depth exploration of the education reform initiatives that were implemented by Japanese Prime Minister Nakasone Yasuhiro during his time in office in the 1980s.

Nakasone was a proponent of educational reform as a means of improving Japan's competitive position in the global economy. He believed that Japanese education needed to become more internationally competitive in order to prepare future generations of Japanese workers to succeed in the global market.

Riley's book examines the various policy proposals that Nakasone promoted, including changes to the structure and curriculum of Japanese schools, as well as initiatives to promote greater internationalization of the education system. The book also explores the political and social context in which these reforms were implemented, as well as their long-term impact on Japanese education.

Overall, Japanese Education Reform: Nakasone's Legacy provides a detailed and nuanced look at one of the most significant periods of educational reform in Japanese history, and is an essential resource for anyone interested in the Japanese education system or in education policy more broadly.
