Contemporary Research in the United States, Germany, and Japan on Five Education Issues


This report from the U.S. Department of Education reviews "the current literature relating to the psychological and social processes involved in teaching and learning mathematics and science in the United States, Germany, and Japan." The report looks at five topics in depth: a) The structure of the school in that country; b) The role of national standards in educational practice; c) The role of school in adolescents' lives; d) The influence of individual differences among students; and e) The training and working conditions of teachers. By looking at educational practices in other countries, the report argues, we may find ways to improve aspects of our own educational systems.
