Book Title: Japan's High Schools

Author: Thomas P. Rohlen

Book Description:

I read this book while I was an English teacher in Japan, and was impressed with the depth and breadth of the study. It inspired me to look up Tom and apply to Stanford. He ended up being my dissertation advisor, mentor and friend. This book is one of the best ethnographies of schooling ever written, and continues to be used in courses around the world.
