The Daily Herald takes readers inside Japanese classrooms, where a group of surburban Chicago teachers who visited were surprised not to find high-tech, computer-rich schools. Instead, the teachers saw peeling paint, crowded classrooms and sparse playgrounds. But as readers learn in the series, the teachers also found a country with a national government committed to supporting education, motivated students and teachers willing to play multiple leadership roles. U.S. and Japanese education systems are compared and contrasted. (Nov. 26 - 30, 1995)
