Current Status and Problems of Special Education in Japan.
Kitahara, Hitoshi
The protection of the blind from the early 17th to the late 19th century, and the emergence of private and later public schools for the blind and deaf are discussed in a review of special education in Japan. Although the education of the visually and aurally handicapped was made mandatory, educational facilities are noted to be too scarce for the compulsory schooling of other handicapped children. Laws encouraging school enrollment and the financial responsibility of government are described. Priorities established by the Ministry of Education are listed, and the present status and problems of special education are explored. (RJ)
