Japan is very well known for its values and principles worldwide. Japanese believe that children should first learn how to be respectful, disciplined and well-mannered before taking a degree as education. Japanese don’t take exams in the first three years of school they take small tests instead. It is a common belief in Japan that manners come before any certificate of knowledge.
In schools and colleges in Japan, students help each other and work as a team even while cleaning their school themselves. This teaches them to have respect for work and to take care of each other. The same values are transferred in offices where it is a common practice to see even the president cleaning his space himself. This also imparts a value of equality in Japanese society as whole.
Children in Japan are also taught to be gentle to animals and nature. This teaches them to be generous, compassionate and empathetic towards their environment. They are also taught qualities like grit, self-control, and justice in schools form the very beginning.
Students learn mathematics, science, moral values, social studies, physical education with Japanese literature and English. Apart from studies they also learn arts, poetry, calligraphy, Japanese Abacus and handicrafts. The school schedule of the Japanese kids is also very nice as the students have to report to the school at 8:45 and they also get 10 -15 minutes break before next class. The school ends at 3 pm and after that after-school activities are there.
Studies have also shown that Japanese students on average spend about one-third more time learning each class period than American students do. It has been observed that students in Japan don’t skip class or come late and the quality of being disciplined and always be on time is imbibed by the children as they see their parents’ behavior in general life.
In Japanese elementary and junior high schools mostly students and teachers all eat their lunch together because Japanese believe the importance of teaching kids healthy eating habits at an early age. This helps kids understand the importance of nutritious foods with appropriate calories and nutrition because quality food education is considered to be an essential value for a growing child. Japan’s food is safest and most nutritious in the world.
