Title :USCAR's Language Policy and English Education in Okinawa : Featuring High Commissioner Caraway's Policies
Authors :Ishihara, Masahide
Issue Date :2004
Abstract :This paper presents an investigation of language policies that USCAR enforced or tried to carry out in the first half of 1960s. Three controversial policies of High Commissioner Caraway shall be featured : establishment of the English Language Center, re-introduction of English education to elementary schools, and establishment of an English commercial high school. These policies were made in order to improve English education in post-war Okinawa, where the people were expected to have a good command of spoken English. Caraway's policies raised heated disputes and strong opposition from the Okinawa Teachers Association and their supporters, who wanted to educate Okinawan children as Japanese citizens.
