Posted in: Suga's pledge to boost fertility treatment won't reverse declining birth rate, say experts See in context

My husband and I wanted to have three kids, but stuck to two. This is why:

Wages are too low

Taxes, etc., are too high

Education is far too expensive

Working hours are too long

When we had our kids, preschool was not free, so we paid for all that. Now with two kids in a public junior high, the cost of juku is crazy. We literally have no money left at the end of the month. Next we have to pay for high school, more juku and university.

I think the main point is the cost of education. If education was completely free, people would have more kids. The mixed public/private system should be abolished. Just make all schools public.
