A junior high school in Mobara, Chiba Prefecture, caused concern after it distributed a survey among its students in an attempt to root out bullying and other issues.
The questionnaire asked students for information that they may otherwise not have an opportunity to communicate, such as the names of bullies or students they did not wish to be in the same class as. Students were said to be uncomfortable being asked to write their names on the questionnaires, NTV reported Saturday.
The school in question released a statement saying that it now realized the survey was ill-advised and had already scrapped the plan. A spokesman for the Chiba board of education said they would like to see education professionals guiding their students to build better relationships.© Japan Today
