Hideki MARUYAMA National Institute for Educational Policy Research (NIER) of Japan is the only govenmental reseach institute for education policy and research and belongs to Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT).

It started out as the National Institute for Educational Research in June 1949 and conducted basic and practical research surveys concerning education. In January 2001, following the central government restructuring, NIER was restructured and reorganized to become a comprehensive policy research body with a new name the "National Institute for Educational Policy Research." The purpose of the changes was to strengthen the role and characteristics of the institute as a research organization which contributes to the promotion and formulation of educational policy plans.

For more details, go to www.nier.go.jp/English/ or e-mail: info@nier.go.jp In this page, we present brief information on Japanese education. Each article within this page is designed to cover the major aspects of the education system and some contemporary topics in education, as well as provide a first glances at Japanese education.

Starting from two basic articles that treat the historical development of modern education in Japan and the general characteristics of Japanese education respectively, we plan to add to this page a series of short articles. We hope that the information will be of use to researchers, administrators, practicing teachers and graduate students who have an interest in Japanese education. The references cited in each article should lead readers to further sources of information.
