Abstract

There are about 65,000 children studying abroad today. This seems to be desirable on the surface from the viewpoint of the internationalization of Japan. However, is it good enough? Once I was involved in an education for Japanese students overseas as a principal of a Japanese school. While I worked there, I realized the fact that the students at a Japanese school tend to spend their school lives joyfully, whereas those who go to the local schools are sometimes unable to adapt to the school life and consequently they have serious problems. Japanese children living overseas and studying at local schools have considerable risks related to the development of language, academic ability, the identity as Japanese, and their self-esteem. Parents who take their children along and start their new assignment abroad should not underestimate the risks on the school education. In order to reduce these risks, it is significant to have their children study at the Japanese schools or supplementary institutions which are established in foreign countries. I strongly recommend you to use these schools. In case you don’t have the opportunity to do so, you should make every effort to educate your children by yourselves, while sending them to the local schools. The risks I showed above should be examined more sufficiently, and I would like to expect to be reflected in the state of education for Japanese children living abroad and the following system of the returnees.
