Education in east Asia varies widely, due to the cultural and political histories of each country. The communist governments of China, North Korea, and Vietnam mandate schooling differently from the limited democracy of Hong Kong and the parliamentary government of Japan. The history of the educational philosophies, systems, and curricula of seventeen East Asian countries are described here, with a timeline highlighting educational developments, and a special day in the life feature, a personal account of what it is like for a student to attend school in that country.

"Overall the volume presents a comprehensive picture of the current state of East Asian education systems. Additionally, this work provides some very illuminating excerpts on issues related to globalization and education reform within the context of national efforts to train and socialize populations for economic and political development." - Comparative Education Review
"Education students, executives with multinational corporations and NGOs, and interested adult readers are the audience for this survey of the education systems of the world." - MultiCultural Review
"Ultimately, these books should find useful homes in high school and college libraries; as components of international and comparative education courses (at the undergraduate and even graduate levels); as a reference for instructors of introductory-level Asian survey courses; and as additions to personal libraries of academicians who wish to understand better the diverse means, modes, and mechanisms of education across the countries and territories of East, South, and Southeast Asia." Reviews with Going to School in South Asia - Southeast Review of Asian Studies
