10,400 foreign kids lack Japanese language education   

Some 10,400 students, a majority of whom had foreign nationality, attending public schools across the nation who need Japanese language education did not receive such support, according to education ministry data in 2016.

The adoption of country-wide measures is urgently needed, as children without support are dispersed across all 47 prefectures.

According to the May 2016 survey, 43,947 students required Japanese language education. Among these, 33,547 received support from teachers specially deployed for this purpose, part-time instructors or volunteers. Meanwhile, 24%, or 10,400 did not receive such support.

Lack of special Japanese language education teachers is one reason for the severe shortfalls. There are only 2,224 such teachers working across the nation.

The education ministry has announced it will seek to boost the number of such instructors to one teacher per 18 students requiring Japanese language help, but measures have fallen behind as more than 70% of public schools have fewer than five foreign students.
