Program Abstract: The fascinating comparision between Japanese and American educational systems examines both the differences in goals between the two and the different ways in which they seek to achieve the same goal. With American producers photographing in Japan and Japanese producers photographing in the U.S., this documentary explores efforts in both countries to balance creativity and disipline in education. Above all, this Oregon Public Broadcasting program gives American educators a better understanding of the high level of focus and displine of Japanese students.
