This month, November 2018, a translation in Japanese of my book, Presidents, Congress, and the Public Schools, was released in Tokyo. I want to thank the University of Tokyo Press for this opportunity, and also thank you to the Harvard Education Press for working with that university publisher to make this possible. The Harvard Education Press published the book in English in 2015.

A special appreciation goes to the three translators who worked over a year to produce a good translation. They are three professors Naoshi Kira, Toshiyuki Omomo, and Satoshi Takahashi.
