    Since we have state run schools, the states decide how to allot the money to the school districts. In Illinois, larger communities receive larger per capita from the state. For instance in Chicago schools, the schools receive $15 per capita, in Madison County, south central Illinois, the amount is $1.50 per student. Very unfair even though Madison County property tax rates are at a much higher rate than Chicago.

    In this modern age, you don’t need high-tech bombs to destroy a country. Just corrupt or destroy their education system and that country will fall apart in a very few time. These words clarify the importance of the education system for a country. Many countries are full of natural resources which can make them one of the richest countries but just because of the lack of education they are struggling. To make a country strong or successful first thing to do is improve the education system of that country. Because a country can’t survive if the people of that country don’t know how to survive.
    As a teacher, you can also help to create your country great by using the Complete List of Teaching Methods and Strategies: mytutorsource.com/blog/teaching-methods/
    To improve the education system of a developing country there are a few basic things we should work on. First of all, we have to improve the standard of our education. While making the programs and policies keep the higher aims and goals in mind. Next is accountability which is one of the most essential parts of the education system. There must be an accountability framework in place that rewards institutions that achieve exceptional achievements while penalizing those that do not. Also, involve the parents of the students. Just a teacher can’t do anything without parents' help. Because in the school the teacher has responsibility for students study but at the same time parents also have to play their role to teach their children’s. The final step which is essential to improve a country’s education system is to stay up to date with the technology. If you are living in 2022 and still teaching windows XP or dos to the students then you are just destroying the student’s future.

    Among the most negative aspects of the Japanese education system are :
    1) too based on memory, and almost complete lack of critical analysis and debate.
    2) no choice of other foreign language than English before university
    3) very poor English teachers (often they couldn't hold a conversation with a native speaker)
    4) teachers lack professional knowledge. One secondary school teacher can teach several unrelated subjects (eg. maths, history and English), which is unheard of where I come from.
    5) too uniformised curriculum. Teachers have no freedom to choose their textbook or create their own syllabus, or to choose what part of the curriculum should be more emphasized.
    6) low level of education in general (eg. now students learn that the circular constant (pi) is 3 instead of 3,1415; students can speak English when they complete highschool;...)
    7) poor general knowledge curriculum (little history and geography)
    Look at Japan's performance in OECD PISA. Their results are leading in Mathematics and Science, and above the OECD average in Reading in 2018.

    The results for PISA in the first one (2000) were underwhelming for Japan and led to commentary that the country had little free thought and complex analysis, and mostly rote repetition (see 1) from Maciamo above). The education system changed and Japan has done better in the test as a possible result.

    Note, the test is in Japanese. The English language teaching is absolute crap in Japan (3).

    From a 2009 paper
    Parents in Japan are better educated than those in most other countries...
    The share of students from disadvantaged backgrounds in Japan is below average...
    Among OECD countries, Japan has the 3rd smallest proportion of students with an immigrant background.
    Low spending on education but good results
    Japan ranks 17th among 34 OECD countries on GDP per capita ...
    Results from PISA suggest that Japan’s education system has produced strong results despite the fact that total spending on education,
    both public and private is well below the OECD average as a share of GDP. Japan invests 3.3% of its GDP in education, compared

    to the OECD average of 4.9%, representing 9.4% of overall public expenditure, compared to an OECD average of 13.3%
    About juku classes
    A large percentage of Japanese students receive private, out-of-school academic instruction. Such instruction often takes place in institutions known as “juku”, but is also delivered as home-based tutoring and distance learning. At the primary school level,jukuparticipation increased from 16% in 1985 to 26% in 2007, and at the lower secondary level, from 44% to 53%. At the upper secondary level, participation in private tutoring is even greater... The average expenditure [on Juku] per student more than doubled in real terms between 1985 and 2007, reaching an average of JPY 21 000 per month (about USD 3 150 annually)

    Attendance in more than one year of pre-primary education was practically universal (97%) in Japan
