International comparisons of student achievement in mathematics, science, and reading have consistently shown that Japanese and Korean students outperform their peers in other parts of world. Understandably, this has attracted many policymakers and researchers seeking to emulate this success, but it has also attracted strong criticism and a range of misconceptions of the Japanese and Korean education system. Directly challenging these misconceptions, which are prevalent in both academic and public discourses, this book seeks to provide a more nuanced view of the Japanese and Korean education systems. This includes the idea that the highly standardized means of education makes outstanding students mediocre; that the emphasis on memorization leads to a lack of creativity and independent thinking; that students’ successes are a result of private supplementary education; and that the Japanese and Korean education systems are homogenous to the point of being one single system. Using empirical data Hyunjoon Park re-evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of the existing education systems in Japan and Korea and reveals whether the issues detailed above are real or unfounded and misinformed. Offering a balanced view of the evolving and complex nature of academic achievement among Japanese and Korean students, this book will appeal to students and scholars of Asian, international and comparative education, as well as those interested in Asian society more broadly.

Student Counseling in Japan was first published in 1953.The democratization of Japan during the allied occupation following World War II brought fundamental changes to that country's system of higher education. As traditional authoritarianism gave way to more democratic relations between professor and student, Japanese educators recognized the need to develop more effective student personnel services in their universities. They turned for technical assistance to American specialists, and the project described in this volume, the Japanese Universities Institutes on Student Personnel Services, was the result.The institutes, conducted in Japan under the direction of Wesley P. Lloyd, then dean of students at Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah, were attended by faculty representatives from nearly all the Japanese colleges and universities. The institute staffs included six Americans, in addition to the director, and a larger number of Japanese professors.Dr. Lloyd describes the planning of the institutes, the administrative procedures and operation, the academic content, and related projects and activities. He evaluates the project and recommends next steps for student personnel services in Japan.From its beginning as a hope expressed by Japanese university officials to their Ministry of Education and to the Civil Information and Education Section of the Supreme Command Allied Powers, through many months of effort to its successful conclusion, the project represented a high degree of international cooperation.This account is significant, therefore, to all who are interested in the furtherance of international understanding through the exchange of ideas and education, as well as to specialists in the fields of counseling and other student personnel services and to those with a special interest in Japan's culture and society.
