Schulabstinenz und schulische Gewalt in Japan


Manuel Metzler


German media show a tendency to exaggerate the problematic outcomes of the Japanese education system. Stress and aggression are described as omnipresent, youth as a lost generation. International comparison can serve as a means to qualify these assumptions. The author collects and analyses figures on school violence and school absenteeism. He finds that absenteeism in Japan may be about as high as in Germany, and that Japanese students are by far less violent than their German counterparts. Doubtlessly, the Japanese education system has its problems, but put in relation to the German case, their actual size does not justify the overly critical and thus self-satisfied view of German media.
