Class Size and Student/Teacher Ratios in the Japanese Preschool.
Tobin, Joseph Jay; And Others
Comparative Education Review, v31 n4 p533-49 Nov 1987
Japanese preschool teachers and administrators watched and commented on videotapes of Japanese and U.S. preschools. In contrast to American notions of home-school continuity and the mothering role of the preschool teacher, Japanese educators saw their large preschool classes (of approximately 30 students) as teaching overly individualistic, pampered Japanese preschoolers to become responsible members of a group.
