• Inclusive Education in Japan: A Meta-Synthesis

      Munro, Brooke (University of Alaska Southeast, 2017-08-05)
      The Japanese education system is held in high regards for the quality of public education and the types of careers Japanese students secure once graduating. Unfortunately, students with disabilities in Japan are not able to access the same high-quality education as their peers without disabilities due to a lack of inclusive education practices. Many surveys were gathered from Japanese parents with children with disabilities, mainstream Japanese teachers, Japanese principals, and Japanese students with disabilities regarding the perception of people with disabilities. This meta-synthesis of literature on inclusive education in Japan investigates public education for students with disabilities in Japan and the impact of cultural norms with people who are different.
