Chuo-kyoiku-shingikai dai 21, 22, 23, tokubetsuiinkai shingikeika chukan hokokusho (The Interim Reports of the 21st, 22nd, and 23rd Committees of the Central Council for Education).

This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of the reports of three committees of the Central Council for Education. The 21st Committee reports that school education in Japan has expanded in balance with the level of schooling of parents and society at large, in proportion to the economy, and within the per capita income of the people. Viewed in this light, the large increase in enrollments since the end of World War II should not be viewed as remarkable. The 22nd Committee claimed that compulsory education has progressed rather gradually since 1872. Full and universal attendance has always been a goal. Junior high school is now compulsory, and senior high school covers 75% of that age group. The 23rd Committee stated that in determining the scale on which education should be financed, full account should be taken of the recent tendency for the ratio of educational expenditure to the national income to remain stationary, and for the ratio of public expenditure on educational in the total educational expenditure to decline.
