The Debate on Patriotic Education in Post-World War II Japan
Ide, Kanako
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v41 n4 p441-452 Aug 2009
The debate over patriotic education in Japan is marked by power shifts between the two different political groups that have different views of the role of patriotic education. By analyzing the power shift from a historical perspective, this essay makes a point that one of the problems of the debate over patriotic education in Japan is that the debate has never been discussed in terms of the conception of patriotism.
