Reforming Education in Postwar Japan: American Planning for a Democratic Japan, 1943-1946.
Beauchamp, Edward R.
Journal of Curriculum and Supervision, v11 n1 p67-86 Fall 1995
If the American goal in occupying Japan was to transform the nation from a militaristic, authoritarian state to a democratic one, the venture can be judged successful. Japan's postwar record in democratic education is good, if imperfect. Japan faces problems of bureaucratization and alienation, excessive achievement pressures on students, and discrimination against women and minorities. (54 references) (MLH)
