The Council for the Implementation of Education Rebuilding

Educational reform is promoted as one of the most important issues for the Cabinet in order to put the rebuilding of education into effect and to build an appropriate education system for Japan in the 21st century. Therefore, the administration endorsed the launch of the Council for the Implementation of Education Rebuilding  by Cabinet decision on January 15, 2013.

In addition to the Prime Minister, the Chief Cabinet Secretary, the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology and Minister in Charge of Education Rebuilding, the Council comprises 18 experts from the education sector, the economic sector, local governments and a broad range of other fields.

I am honored to announce that I have been selected as one of the those experts. Our first discussion will be focused on diversity for education.

I will continue to update my activities with this council via TIS TIMES to the community.

Thank you.
