    The present paper tries to encompass some of the differences of the two educational systems, the Japanese one and our own Romanian system, but pointing our common ground as well, in regards to quality assessment, problems and quality management. The focus is on how international bodies perceive the quality of our educational systems and what conclusions regarding some of our problems can be drawn from their findings. And, even though the comparison may be sometimes unfair, it can very well pin point some of the options we have in the course of our educational system reforms and some solutions we can consider in the future. Focusing attention on individuality and creativity, on motivation rather than simple organizational technicalities might prove to be more efficient in both short and long run , given that studies have shown that relatively low improvement in labor force skills have a great impact on the future economic growth of a country.
