JCCC Educational Exchange Program (JEEP) is a program through which teachers and school/district administrators from the Chicago metropolitan area are selected to go to Japan for a two-week study tour. The primary goal of this program is to give participants the opportunity to view the Japanese educational system firsthand and to learn about various aspects of Japanese culture and society.
This summer three educators traveled to Tokyo, Hiroshima, Kyoto, and Nara to visit public schools and boards of education. The links below are their English language reports of the trip.
