Japanese language schools

Each day, after public school ended, Nisei (second-generation) children attended Japanese language schools for an hour's instruction in Japanese language and culture. Issei (first-generation) parents wanted their children to learn Japanese to help them succeed in the community and if they ever moved to Japan. The Nisei were moderately interested at best, and language acquisition was spotty. Japanese language schools were considered suspect after the attack on Pearl Harbor, and their principals were among the first arrested.
