Naha school children fare better in achievement tests

Date Posted: 2007-12-14

Results of the latest scholastic achievement tests are in, and Okinawa again is at the bottom of the rankings.
Okinawa children scored five points lower than the nationwide average, the worst ever according to Prefecture officials. The achievement tests were administered last April.
The only bright spot was in Naha City, where childrenís average was higher than the national average. The chairman of the Naha City Board of Education says eight of the cityís schools had students scoring higher, something not expected. The other 17 Naha City schools were below average.
Simply stated, the chairman says, is that Naha City school children donít study much at home. Nationally, 8.4% of students said they didnít study at home, but in Naha City, that figure was 17.3%. The Board of Education and the Parent Teachers Association will now work together on a program to get kids to study more. One official says the goal will be to reform the daily life, homework and family relationship with students and their parents.
