Here is an interesting article that is very revealing about the Japanese school system. It won't be too surprising to anyone who woks here, but it my be informative otherwise. Here it is more important that your name tag is put on your uniform correctly than it is that you pay attention in class. I agree with a lot of the emphasis put on being a student and not a little adult-something that fucks with American students endlessly in my opinion- however Japan is going to have to address issues like these more and more as its native population declines. It might have to actually think about who is Japanese, and who is allowed in their schools.
attempting to silence the voices in my head.
