Motivating the students
Japan is working on motivating its young primary school students, after a revealing paper entitled Japanese Government Policies in Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology was put forward by the Japanese Education Ministry. According to the paper, Japanese students tend to be unwilling to learn despite knowing the importance of education and many fail to digest what they have learned in the classroom. In an effort to motivate the students, the Education Ministry suggested peaking students' curiosity to let them want to learn, such as through field trips. In a basic sense, teach them how to learn.
