Who Goes to College? Features of Institutional Tracking in Japanese Higher Education.
Ono, Hiroshi
American Journal of Education, v109 n2 p161-95 Feb 2001
Describes institutional tracking in Japan, examining the process of advancing from middle school to high school to college (accounting for social origin effects). Results support a tournament-like mobility for people in Japan's higher education system, where those who move down do not move up again. Results also suggest that social origin matters, and institutional tracking affects men and women differently. (Contains references.) (SM)
