"Another day, another crazy police story. Welcome to Japan! I keep asking myself where the police academy recruits these people?"

"I would like to see an additional crime go on the lawbooks though called, "betraying the public trust". Anyone occupying a public position would automatically be charged with this, and the effect would be a doubling of sentence. Thus a police officer who assaulted someone and was found guilty would get, for example, 3 years, and a further 3 years for betraying the public trust. A teacher who molested a student would get the standard Japanese 2 days in prison, and a further 2 days for betraying the public trust, etc."
Amen to that. I want to jail CEOs too more than private individuals when they cheat their taxes. Death penalty anyone?

"I would not be happy with facial recognition software. It is notoriously unreliable and I resent the potential for it to be plugged into other surveillance systems like traffic cameras, subway cameras, etc. to track movements without a warrent or consent."
Yes, warrent is needed!

By the way, I am a parent of two bi-racial kids in Tokyo for a decade now. And, I love it when other parents or other people dictate what I should teach and what not to teach to my kids. I do not like the golden rule. Go figure. People should tell other people what to do with their lives. I don't like professors telling what I should do with my kids. People with higher education are so overrated with their research and studies. I would rather have total strangers make suggestions for the education of my kids. From now on, I will only, totally listen and take advice from people from this forum. All the best. thank you guys.

"STOP TESTING." Not on planet earth. If they do not test how will they know if they are doing better? The fact that Finland is number one in the rankings because they tested the students! This is all very amusing. Logic is a rare flower.

"with first-hand knowledge of the workings of the education system" Yes, I totally agree on that. Professors do not teach at all and do not know anything about the education system. This is because professors are not part of the educational system.

Parents are much smarter because professors did some research and studies and were peer-reviewed by experts who are accountable. And professors think and conclude because of the available data. Totally not in the best interest of the students. Research and studies are nothing. Why anyone in their right mind should believe people who studies these kind of things? I think professors should not comment about anything and let parents dictate what all of us should do. Empirical evidence are so inconvenient nowadays.
