During the Meiji period (1868-1912) it was decided that the Japanese education system had to modernize in order to catch up with the west. Public schooling was introduced and open to both boys and girls. They respected both the German and American education models and took many of their principles into Japan. During the 1930s however, when the militarists rose to power, education in Japan became much more about indoctrination, power, and control. All text and teaching was controlled by the government.
