(1)The study is a historical look at periodicals published between the mid-Meiji and pre-World War era for prospective applicants, and it attempts to examine the information disseminated through this media on placement, access, and educational institutions (including college).
(2)Since the Meiji Restoration Japan's modern educational system has been instituted and nurtured in a tightly integrated and centrally guided manner by the government. This study explores the oft-ignored cognitive processes that students undergo in the process of learning at school, and addresses the following issues:
(1) Why caused the "learning at school" and what does it mean to students?
(2) What sociological and psychological mechanisms were formed on the part of the learner in selecting educational institutions or academic specialization?
(3) What kind of information was available for the learning regarding selection of schools? How was such information passed to the prospective applicants?
What media was responsible in distributing such information?
(3)A data from a variety of sources, including Juken to Shougakusei, Juken to Gakusei, Keisetsu Jidai, Jukenkai, Tetsudou Seinen, Daigaku oyobi Daigakussei, were analyzed and interpreted to reveal that prospective applicants greatly benefited from the information through this media. Of a particular interest is the finding that opinion columns of Jido Kenkyu offer valuable insights into the pathological problems in education.
