Being a public school teacher here in Japan, I find it a problem that many teachers don't think on their own.

They tell sts to cut hair, take off the piercing rings and tattoos just because they did the same in the previous year, without thinking WHY the rules are necessary.

This guy was just an excessive and old-fashioned teacher who'd never thought what reaction from public would be expected.

He may not tell the truth but he deserves a chance to talk.

Don't buy food from Fukushima.

If water is bad up there, seafood the should be worse.

Make TEPCO take care of this.

Jp government doesn't care about us.

Chernobyl has been restricted for 33 years.

It's been only 6 years since the disaster.

Jp gov't is not trustworthy.

They changed the standard of radiation AFTER the tsunami from 1 to 20 just for their convenience.

I still can't believe that they encourage people to buy food from Fukushima and people never complain about it.

Are they gonna kill us?

Being a public school teacher here, I'm surprised that many teachers call children with no opinions who never talk back, complain or point out teachers' fault "good students."

I'm Japanese born and raised here, and I'm very lucky because I realised this is wrong since I know what's common outside Japan thanks to English.

Problems like this emerge more if they keep hiring part-timers whose responsibilities are as much as nothing.

This is not the only cause, but a big one.

However the media (eps. TV news) is broadcasting only the footage where the teacher hit him.

Later, the part where the kid yell at the teacher came out ONLY on internet.

What are they trying to do? Make teachers lose the dignity and what?

Education fails, the country fails.

Stop useless construction that are to spend all the allocated budget, and giving out Livelihood Protection to unentitled people.

Aren't there so many important things that we should know such as under-20 murderer's identity, Abe's cheating in land price,etc?

Time for news is finite resources, isn't it?

Posted in: Japan's high school English proficiency falls short of gov't targets See in context

instead of hiring all alts they should accept more students from overseas where they don't speak English as a first language but a second

because English teachers who speak English as a first language give the students lot of pressure but students who are of the same age as the jp students here give them more chances to talk in English

those students from China Indonesia the Philippines might speak not perfect English but the fact they are not perfect will give Japanese students more courage to speak English.

more native speaker teachers give them the thoughts that they should be perfect when they speak English which is no good

Japan will never change unless people start going to the election.

Yep. Let's do it.

Abe sucks.

Tax on pachinko.

Inspection for livelyhood protection. (people on welfare)

Withdrawal of consumption tax.

Make them stop using difficult terms in the Diet and let young people understand what's going on. (Seriously, being a native speaker of Japanese, I know politicians are really good at making problems blurry by doing this.)

Things to do are countless.

Must be tricky questions like:

Yes:85%      No:14%        Other:1%

Posted in: Boy who moved to Yokohama from Fukushima bullied at school See in context

Might be a sidetrack, but let me say this is partly the government's responsibility.

Why do they say everything's under control that's not? Why do they forbid the media from reporting that tons of contaminated water is leaking even now? Because vegetables and crops won't be bought by people? Well, I already stopped buying things from Fukushima because the infomation is so vague. No wonder the kids without good knowledge about nuclear stuff are baffled with a friend from where the accident took place.

As for bullying, I agree with those commens above mostly. But one thing, when the leader is kicked out, children will start calling another one the leader. Been working for a school, I see that several times.
