I taught in Japan for four years, I agree having the kids clean (from junior high and up) is outdated and a waste of time. It's great in theory, and might work to a degree for younger kids and at the dojo, but by the time the kids get to junior high they don't give a shit. Worked in four different junior highs, all of the areas the kids were responsible to clean were always filthy. And despite constantly changing between outdoor shoes/indoor shoes/gym shoes….never made a difference. Dirt, dust, gravel always got tracked in because that's what the playing field is made of.
