Basic Survey on Study in Japan III - Topics: The Trend in Junior High School Students 11. Concerns over study are increasing.


The Trend in Junior High School Students
Concerns Over Study are increasing
With less pressure from parents and teachers, more junior high school students feel studying is a burden and are unable to find meanings in study and to see how useful it will be in the future.

Q Tell us your concerns regarding study.




Study-related Concerns (Junior High School Students)
The number of junior high school students who concern "there are subjects I do not like", or "do not know how to study well" is highest in all three surveys as it changes to around 70%. If compared to the 1990 survey, complaints about the burdensome-feelings toward study, such as "there is too much to memorize" (8.4% increase), "want the number of subjects to be decreased" (10.2% increase) are on the rise. Also, students who "do not understand the necessity to study such subjects" (10.6% increase), and who are unable to "find meanings in studying" are increasing. The number of students who "wish classes are easier to understand" has also increased by 10%, and has surpassed 50%.
