Corporal Punishment in Japan and Tokyo

http://youtu.be/BcR00jFh7Xg A video about Corporal Punishment and the Educational system (in regards to such measures) in Japan and Tokyo. -------------------------- Follow me on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/TokyoZeplin Follow me on Twitter! https://twitter.com/TokyoZeplin Or my music website/blog: www.zeplin.jp -------------------------- This is of course purely based, as I said, on my own experiences with people in Tokyo, and unless otherwise noted has nothing to do with facts or statistics. This was something I thought I would make a video about, after Gimmeaflakeman created a video talking about the recent suicide of a Japanese student after he was publicly punished by a teacher. Really a strong video about corporal punishment in japanese schools. The link to Gimmeaflakeman's video is this: "体罰 corporal punishment. (International Poll): What do you think about it?" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKzrRviTQjE chillinkansai also has a video up on the same subject, with more insight on japanese corporal punishment: "Osaka Board of Education, coaches, and loss" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pIhjihPc8Uc The article with the suicide of the student can be found here: "Student commits suicide after being beaten by school basketball coach" http://www.japantoday.com/category/national/view/student-commits-suicide-after-being-beaten-by-school-basketball-coach A quote: "Corporal punishment is banned in schools in Japan. However, after the boy's suicide, the school conducted a survey of 50 past and present members of the basketball club. Twenty-one of them said they have been physically punished by the teacher, the education board officials said." This has resulted in many speaking out against corporal punishment, such as can be seen in this article about the issue here: "Kuwata rejects corporal punishment" http://www.japantimes.co.jp/text/sb20130113j1.html A quote: "In 2009, a former sumo trainer was sentenced to six years in prison for his role in the fatal beating of a young wrestler during training. Former trainer Junichi Yamamoto ordered three wrestlers, in the name of practice, to beat 17-year-old wrestler Tokitaizan, hitting him with beer bottles, a baseball bat and hosing him with cold water. Tokitaizan, whose real name was Takashi Saito, collapsed after practice and died in June 2007. An autopsy showed bruises and injuries that prosecutors said showed his ordeal was not from training." I briefly mention a survey done on teachers in Japan, on their opinions on corporal punishment or physical punishment in schools. That survey/article can be found here: "Many Japanese Teachers Favor Corporal Punishment" Nichi Bei Times, San Francisco, USA, 21 November 1987 http://www.corpun.com/jpsc8711.htm A few quotes: KOBE -- About 60 per cent of junior high school teachers said they felt corporal punishment was necessary, according to a questionnaire that the Kobe Municipal Teachers Union recently conducted among its entire membership. ////// At elementary schools, two per cent of teachers supported physical punishment, 47 per cent said they sometimes felt it was necessary ///// Meanwhile, an official in charge of junior high school student guidance at the Education Ministry said the results were regrettable in that corporal punishment is forbidden by law. Of course, the article is old and outdated, over 20 years, but it goes to show the attitudes of Japanese teachers to some degree.
