Special education school now running out of space

Date Posted: 2009-04-16

A Prefecture-owned school for special needs students is running out of space, and they’re scrambling to get enough school buses to serve their young clients.

Actually, the Prefecture’s Ohira Special Support School in Urasoe City is busting at the seams, with 301 students enrolled despite being geared to provide classrooms and service to 200. The special education school serves youngsters in Urasoe and Naha Cities. There aren’t enough classrooms to meet space requirements.

“Some 60 of our students are autistic tendency students,” says Principal Seiji Shigemori, “and they need to move their bodies and need to have larger spaces. Now, we’ve so many students, the situating is influencing the children’s development.” The chairman of the Board of Education visited the school this week, and admitted “I could see that students are having a very hard school environment. We are acting quickly to do what we can now, and to reform the school.”

Parents, who have been driving their children to and from school, are demanding action. Other parents are forced to use taxis to get their kids to the school. They’re demanding the Prefecture Board of Education reform the school’s management.
