The Role of Universities in the Education of Japanese Teachers: A Distant Perspective.
Hawley, Carolyn A.; Hawley, Willis D.
Peabody Journal of Education, v72 n1 p233-44 1997
Examines the role of Japanese universities in educating Japan's teachers. After an overview of the teacher-certification and professional-development processes in Japan, the paper identifies several propositions that might explain why Japanese universities play a relatively small role in preservice and inservice opportunities and suggests three types of consequences that may result from the modest involvement of Japan's universities.
