10 Facts that show the excellence of Japanese education 

The Japanese have a good report

world of being polished and obstinate people, but also very thoughtful. This culture is so important in the country that children learn these important values ​​early, thanks to the excellent training school inthe country. Although the education system, divided into kindergarten, primary and high school, is similar to that of Brazil, the type of education is very different. You will see that now by giving 10 facts about how the Japanese teach their children, making them exemplary and happy adults. For these and other reasons that Japan's educational system is widely admired, even envied.

1. Before taking tests, children should learn good manners

While they are in the primary stage, the students do not have a very dense teaching content (compared to the following years), as this is the stage where you learn ethics and values. Students learn to have respect and kindness, to be generous people and have compassion for others. Virtues as self - control and sense of justice are also topics of great importance. After learning all this, then students follow the core curriculum than would be our elementary school and then high school.

2. Classes begin in late April

Fun & Info @ Keralites.net

The start of school coincides with the beginning of spring, important period in Japan, marked by the appearance of cherry blossoms, the sakura famous. Thus, children start classes with a sense of positivity. This unusual schedule is not applied elsewhere in the world since the start of school usually starts at the beginning of the year or, in the case of Europe and the United States after the summer. It would be a good idea to adopt the Japanese calendar!

3. Children are cleaning the school

Fun & Info @ Keralites.net

It is expected of all students that they perform cleaning duties at school. This causes them to have a natural sense of work ethic. They form teams and learn what it takes to do a good job or a good job, rather than working hard. Beyond the classroom, also clean the cafeteria and lavatories. As a result, the children also become more careful not to dirt on site, rather than leave it dirty and unkempt. Western children certainly would not like to do this, but it's a great idea to later become wiser adults.

4. Do your meals in the classroom

Meals are communal important moments in Japan. All students eat the same meal, one of the most well prepared and balanced the world, and almost always in the presence of the teachers. This helps to create a strong connection between all, and learn table manners. Before each meal, all make a prayer and say 'thank you' (itadakimasu). When finished, they say the same (gochisosama deshita).They are good manners phrases that express gratitude to the world for the food received by the person who made ​​it, and also to the top at the table.

5. enjoy the extracurricular activities

If the Japanese are not working, then they are having fun. Therefore, the time spent out of school is as important as school hours. This time is divided into extra studies, many of them held in private schools (juku), to improve their income in Mathematics, Science and English, or sports activities and even music clubs. Each high school student can choose your job, such as swimming, table tennis, baseball, chess, among others, in order to improve their performance in that chosen activity until the end of the school term. They socialize with their groups and spend most of the weekend with them too.

6. Children learn poetry and beautiful language calligraphy

Fun & Info @ Keralites.net

Japan never forget their traditional arts. So kanji (more than 2000 Chinese writings), hiragana andkatakan a (both native writing systems) are taught to students. They must learn exactly how to write each of them and make the handwriting in the right direction and precise order. They use pieces of bamboo and rice paper sheets in the process. The haiku poem is a literary richness of Japan, they learn and recite with love. Each student understands the importance of this cultural heritage.

7. The uniforms are required, in and out of school

Fun & Info @ Keralites.net

School uniforms became mandatory in high school, so everyone has the same clothes and thus avoid social barriers. This also reinforces the spirit of unity, showing that all are equal. The same goes for the haircut - the boys have short hair and girls can have medium hair to long, with a short fringe. In public, children are not feared by the people, but respected, and that's why there is a great respect between generations in the country.  

8. The dropout rate is only 0.01%

Fun & Info @ Keralites.net

It is very rare to see a Japanese child out of school. In addition to the frequency, they also try to pay maximum attention to lectures. It was estimated that about 91 percent of students always listen to the teacher all the time. This is good information for those who always thought he was a good student. Who never distracted in class while the teacher was talking about?

9. A single proof decides everything

Fun & Info @ Keralites.net

The high school is so strong and strict in Japan that to get an idea, the Japanese high school diploma is considered a university degree in Italy, a country of great historical and cultural importance. So, the competition is quite fierce for those seeking this level of education in the country. A single test will decide whether the student meets the requirements to move on in high school. If they fail, perhaps not able to go to university, but in Japan, regardless of grade level, all have jobs thanks to economic stability.

10. After the school year, the university is seen as vacation

Fun & Info @ Keralites.net

The efforts of the school year is so great that the higher degree is seen as a sigh in the lives of students. Many of them consider these years as a reward, as the university, although serious, is more flexible. Students can sleep while doing her readings, so the Japanese universities are not as internationally renowned in comparison to other countries. Perhaps this is the result of much hard work during the school years.
