Policy Studies Ⅶ (Education Policy)
Regional Studies in a Global Perspective X (Japan)
Welcome to my lecture, “Educational Policy.” I’m a specialist of Japanese educational policymaking. As Vice-Minister of Japan’s 文部科学省 (Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology), I was responsible for Educational Reform: i.e. renunciation of “Yutori Education” (education with emphasis on giving children more latitude) and reform of national universities. As President of JSPS (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science), I have inaugurated the “HOPE Meeting with Nobel Laureates” to foster talented young researchers of Asia-Pacific region; increased the Budget of Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research; and enhanced programs to support the development of young post-doctoral scholars. I also served as a member of Educational Rebuilding Council installed by the First Abe Cabinet; working to renovate Japanese Education system.
Education is an extremely important national project. Together with students in post-graduate studies, I wish to study and research Japanese educational policy which will greatly influence the future of our country. Diligent pursuit of knowledge will always lead you to a bright future.
