In this second volume, Chapter 2 traces the development of the Japanese educational system and describes the contemporary situation in schools and the labor force, and current issues in Japanese education. Chapter 3 investigates associations between family background and the type of secondary school, and presents a Stage 1 decision model for the allocation of youth among curriculums.
