Modern society and the future of school education

Change in light of changes in the world and society
International comparison of educational approaches and issues
Professor Sim Chun Cat

In modern times, various problems have arisen due to rapid social changes.Globalization, advanced information technology, urban concentration, declining birthrate and aging population, and changes in the environment continue to change the nature of communities, workplaces, families, and individuals. In considering whether it is necessary to aim for education, how should we balance each of new approaches and traditions, technology and humanity, diversity and common rules, cooperativeness and individuality, duty and freedom, equality and distinction, ideals and reality? It becomes very important to take.With this kind of awareness, I am exploring the differences between Japan and other countries from the perspective of comparative educational sociology, regarding the state and issues of school education, which plays a role in the foundation of society and in creating the future.
