Dr. Satoshi Takahashi is an Associate Professor of Education Law and Policy, School of Education, Saitama University. His recent research project is to conduct a comparative research on teacher laws under the Neo-Liberal reforms in the U.S. and Japan. Inquiring into the teacher law reforms in the U.S., he focused on the clause of "highly qualified teachers" under the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) and the requirement of "effective teachers” under the Race to the Top Program (RTTT), as well as those impacts on states' collective bargaining laws and tenure laws for public school teachers. Through the analysis on those issues, he analyzed that, under the federal policy, most of states were urged to amend teacher tenure laws and collective bargaining laws so that students' test scores could be a significant evidence to terminate tenure teachers. While the most policy makers and researchers tended to assume that eliminating job security and working conditions of teachers would make it easier to fire incompetent teachers and thus to improve the academic performance of students, Dr. Takahashi insisted that proper working conditions and job security for teachers were necessary to sustain their qualified teaching practice.
He is the 2016 grantee of the Fulbright Program and the visiting scholar of Teachers College at Columbia University, researching on the right to "comprehensive educational opportunity" conceptualized by Professor Michael A. Rebell.
