This project is funded by the Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research (Kakenhi), Kiban A, No.15H01987, “A Cross-national Research of Japanese Educational Efforts to Meet the Needs of the 21st Century and the Construction of International Models: Exploring Pluralistic Models.” (Head: Ryoko Tsuneyoshi). This project explores educational models from various countries trying to meet the needs of the 21st century, and attempts to build bottom-up educational models from Japanese --- more broadly Asian --- experience. The working paper series introduces typical school practices in Japan, as well as relevant trends in Japanese school education. Internationally, because of the Japanese language barrier, information about Japanese school practices has not been readily accessible. The project team hopes that introducing such information in English will allow for exchanges of ideas and information across borders.
