Summary: "Based on extensive original research, this book explores the early educational experiences of foreign children in Japan. It considers foreign children's experiences of Japanese schools, examines the special tutoring such children often have to improve their language proficiency, and explores the role of mothers in encouraging their children's education. It contrasts the experiences of foreign children with those of Japanese children, sets out the extensive difficulties foreign children encounter in becoming fully accepted by and integrated into Japanese society"-- Provided by publisher.
