Politics of American Education Reform: 50-Year Struggle in Search of Equity is the title of the Japanese translation of Presidents, Congress, and the Public Schools with additional content to bring the book up to date for the time of its publishing. In November 2018, this expanded translation 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.
