I'm a student myself. What's so wrong about allowing us to work and study at the same time? Yeah, there are some who stop going to school and just go missing with the aim of making money. They are only a fraction of international students. Doesn't mean all of us are the same. Almost all of my friends try to pay their own tuition fees without their families' support. Is that wrong? None of them quit the school without graduating.
I would suggest helping those students learn Japanese well, open counseling centers, help them find a part-time job, listen to their troubles as a friend (not as an official bueraucrat). Stop treating us like rich and spoiled kids, most of us want to live an independent life here, making our own beds. Japan only wants rich kids who can afford living here. What about ordinary people? In the age of declining population, wouldn't self-supporting students both help the university and the community around it? I prefer hard-working, decent students who really contribute to the local community rather than party-going brats.
