How to catch physical education in Japan
The Japanese government has issued a recall of physical education books from all public libraries, and parents have been told to return the books to their schools to prevent them from falling into the hands of illegal sellers.
The government said it will start issuing them to parents next week, with a total of 10,000 copies to be distributed in the first week.
The government said parents of pupils aged between three and 12 will be allowed to return their physical education materials to their classrooms.
But some teachers said they were worried the recall might lead to an increase in illegal sales.
“The reason I am worried is that parents will start to sell these books on the black market and will not be able to sell them in their schools.
So they will be more vulnerable,” said a teacher who did not want to be named.
The ministry of education said it had instructed teachers to issue physical education certificates, which will allow teachers to register the book as a registered physical education product in schools.
However, some teachers were sceptical about the idea.
“We have been trying to register physical education products for more than a year, but we are still not able to do it.
So it’s a good idea to register them now,” said the teacher.
According to Japan’s National Police Agency, there were around 10,500 physical education devices sold illegally in 2017.
According the National Institute of Information Technology, around 2,000 physical education apps were downloaded on mobile devices in 2017, while 1,200 were downloaded by mobile phone users.
But in Japan, the digital market is still relatively small compared to that in other countries.
In China, where physical education is taught in schools from kindergarten to primary school, about half of all children go to physical education.
However in Japan’s small public schools, almost half of the pupils are in physical education classes.
The National Police reported that it had received several reports of parents selling physical education school supplies online, and that they had also received calls from parents asking if they had sold the books.
The Ministry of Education said it would ask teachers to stop selling physical eds.
“This is an emergency measure and we are going to make it compulsory for all teachers to report to the school office every time they sell physical education or physical education kit,” the ministry said in a statement.
“Parents who do not report will be punished,” the statement added.
“If a parent is caught selling physical, educational or sports supplies in a public place, the person may be fined 500,000 yen ($5,500).”
This measure is a precautionary measure to avoid children being harmed.
The ministry has taken all possible measures to stop this practice,” the department added.
