what is the difference between the japanese school culture and the american school culture? how do the kids act differently? do they respect teachers more? r crimes or school shootings as common? how is education percieved?do they fight differently? teach me and i shall learn.

Edit: this was the answer i was looking for...shame i had to find it in a completely unrelated thread.

"Japanese children grow up to be obedient, functioning, and healthy contributions to society because of their culture of discipline. I was simply pointing out that one aspect composing this cultural ethos of discipline is the uniform. No, I don’t think that requiring a uniform will make bad kids turn good.

However, by steadily implementing our public schools to engender a more structured air and bring children up in a culture of discipline we can eventually emulate the success of similar laws enacted elsewhere. Japan was only one example"- Seraph Alford

Well, it’s about discipline. They enacted uniform laws in Japan, very strict ones, along with other rules regulating behavior. These rules are largely unnecessary. For example, a law saying that before heading to an arcade after school children must first report home even if their parents know they’re going to the arcade. Uniform laws concerning publics schools are the same thing, they’re just trying to program children to acknowledge social rules. I personally think this is a good thing. Japan is the second most economically powerful nation in the world, second to America. Considering that Japan is a tiny archipelago with a minute population compared to many other nations, and relies on America for military and disaster control, I think this is impressive. I accredit their success to their cultural ethos of discipline. I think we should emulate their sucsess. - Seraph Alford

now try and argue with that peace over war

Emm.. does it count if I tell you the difference between Latin american education and Chinese education?
Well, my cousin told me that in some schools of China, teachers are aloud to hit their students; most of them are guys.

It's like people are just looking for excuses to bash the Western culture.

Seems that way to me.

It's especially sad since most of them are Western themselves

Biggest difference is probably Japanese go to school waay longer, and for all year.
Japanese education is also stricter in my opinion.

Of course, I'm no expert.
I also think Japan cares more about the way they're looked at, image is a waay bigger thing over there in my opinion.
Which affects the way things are done there and here.

Also, indoor shoes.
I want them though.

Theres a whole bunch of things, but that's true when you compare schooling in any country
