Last Week's Japan News on the JapanVisitor blog


Japan spends very little on public education. A trip to any public school makes this clear. However, in a comparison of OECD member states, it becomes even clearer how little Japan spends.

For example, Japan spends 0.5% of its budget on tertiary education. In comparison, the United States spends 1.4%,  the Netherlands the same 1.4%.

Only tiny Luxembourg spends a lower percentage of its national budget than Japan.
