High School for All in East Asia
In this presentation, I present a comparative sociological analysis of the historical formation of universalized upper secondary education and study societies facing declining birth rates after expanding education in East Asia. We are carrying out comparative research in East Asia with 12 members. Our project deals with upper secondary level education. Our project deals with Japan, South Korea, Mainland China (China, hereafter), Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Vietnam.
In this presentation, we mainly show the results of the historical expansion process and depopulating stage of upper secondary education in Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan.
