This chapter discusses Tosiwo Nakayama's education in a postwar world. Nakayama's education occurred in Quonset hut classrooms and as an employee of the Trust Territory government. He made the best of a limited, fledgling colonial school system that consistently struggled to reconcile American educational practices with local realities and resources. As important as anything learned in a classroom, however, was the experience, knowledge, skill set, and personal contact that he derived from his work with the district administration. His employment with the local administration in Chuuk allowed him to move about the larger district where he participated in the promotion of representative government while earning the trust and confidence of those island communities with which he came in contact.
