The OECD’s Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) has been widely recognized as one of the most influential ‘players’ in the development of education policy today. Japan is one East Asian country that has actively integrated the key framework for PISA into its ongoing curricular reform. However, PISA was found to have divergent and converging effects on Japanese education policy. In this lecture, Dr. Takayama will discuss the lessons learned from education reform in Japan.
