Education in Japan including higher education, i.e. the foundation of human resource development, lack recognition of the world trend and future direction of this global age, a recognition that a major paradigm shift has taken place in the last decade or two. I have been pointing this out repeatedly in this site and elsewhere.
I recently introduced you Professor Hisashi Kobayashi (Ref.1), who served as a Professor at Princeton University for many years. We exchange views via e-mail frequently, discuss on his materials etc., to broaden our prospects.
Dr. Kobayashi recently posted his points on his website in a very clear and straight-forward manner. I agree 100% to his views and concerns. Please, by all means, read it and think hard.
How can we ever make progress? Japan’s future depends precisely on education, nurturing of our people. I feel Dr. Kobayashi provides us through his message a number of clues and specific actions to address and solve the problem of ‘Concerns on Japan as seen from Outside’; hints on how education should be. How about your thoughts?
