Abstract:The way in which shogai gakushu policy is handled by Towa-cho bureaucrats is of concern to scholars in a variety of fields interested in the multidimensional dynamics of life at the local level. Japan specialists, cultural and applied anthropologists, political scientists, and educators alike will benefit greatly from this study. While the incompatibility of many global and national education policies with the local needs of third world communities is well known, the case of shogai gakushu in Towa-cho shows that some first world communities may indeed experience the same problem.
