School to work transition in Japan : an ethnographic study

Kaori Okano

This participant-observation study presents the practice of school to work transition at two Japanese high schools, and explains variations about the modal career trajectory of "low achieving" students, drawing on Bourdieu's work. It helps to explain the relationship between social values, family ethos, industry, school and economic performance, and the relatively low class consciousness in Japan. It should be of interest to educationalists, sociologists and labour relations specialists studying Japan.
