Japanese education teaches people to be aware and responsible
Japanese people’s consciousness is also completely different. The streets in Japan are extremely clean, absolutely no water from houses or shops or agencies to the street. Regarding the sense of obeying the Traffic Law of the Japanese people, it is not necessary to say, in the traffic light whether it is a small alley, few people pass by, or even just by themselves, the Japanese people still strictly follow …
When going into the elevator, in case there are many people with Japanese people, it is familiar or strange, the Japanese will keep the button open for everyone to enter and they will be the last to enter. If there are too many, they are willing to yield to everyone and take the next trip; When it comes to the elevator, if Japanese people stand next to the opening button, then the Japanese always stand and hold the button open, let everyone go out and they are always the last.
So why do Japanese people have such awareness and responsibility?
To have such awareness and responsibility, the Japanese have a completely special educational method compared to other countries. They start right from the education in school and teach students how to behave, lifestyle for themselves from the smallest things.
Regarding the model of high school education program, Japan is similar to Vietnam. General education is 12 years, grades 1 to 12 (age 6 to 17 years). However, the model in Japan follows the model: 6 3 3 (6-year elementary school, 3-year junior high school, 3-year high school). And Vietnam Primary School is 5 years, Middle School 4 years, High School 3 years (model: 5-4-3); Regarding labor education for students in Japan, it is completely different from Vietnam, schools do not have to hire workers, but those things make the students clean up their own schools. At Sho Wa Girls High School in Tokyo, the period is 8 periods / day but there are 2 periods of labor (4 periods in the morning, 4 periods in the afternoon: 2 periods and 2 periods).
Lunch was also done by the Japanese students, who prepared their own meals for each of their peers (each took turns to cook lunch). In the afternoon, the students take 2 periods and the last 2 periods are a break time and change clothes to clean up the school (each student has a closet and personal labor protection).
There are no teachers in charge of the work but the children are self-employed and assigned to work: one cleaning the floors, one cleaning the tables and chairs, one cleaning the stairs, one cleaning the stairs, one group trimming the trees, the group trees, the group swept the schoolyard, the remaining group cleaned … Japanese students did so voluntarily and in a very relaxed spirit. At around 5 pm, they finish their labor, change their clothes and go home.
Japanese education – the unity between school education and family education
Only a small part of Japanese education is enough to make people aware that all must start from education: education right in the school and education in the family. However, not every country can do this method of education, which is the unity between school education and Japanese family education. When the teacher teaches children to be independent, they go to their parents and grandparents’ houses instead of taking care of the grandchildren.
In the traffic law school, it is impossible for parents and grandparents to take their children to school and go through the red light … Having encountered conflicts in the school, the teachers are all guiding students, not debating whether they are right or wrong. how to see if you have any faults to apologize to your friends, so when you go home, when your children or grandchildren have a conflict, your parents and grandparents must have a solution as well. This is extremely meaningful when educating people to be conscious of everyone.
Moreover, in Japan, teachers often share with parents issues of uniformity in children’s education. At the same time in Japan, the role of the mother is extremely important in educating the personality of children, especially the sense of independence, a sense of community for all, a sense of common sanitation, and good sense of observance of discipline.
