Figure 3: Types of Senior High Schools Students Wish to Enter


Compared to 11 years ago, the rate of those who answered, " I do not care about results as long as school life is enjoyable " is on the increase. On the other hand, those who "want high average results to get into a 'good' senior high school/four-year college" are on the decrease. The number of students who thought, "right now, stydying is the most important thing" is also decreasing, and the desire to study hard is on a decreasing tendency (Figure 3, 4). This tendency can also be observed in the type of senior high school that one wants to enter, and whether one could enjoy school life or not has become the criterion. One of three junior high school students replied that they would like to enter "a senior high school that has good conditions for pursuing higher studies" (Figure 2, 3).
