Message from the Dean
The Aim of the School of Education
Last autumn, I went to an elementary school near the university as part of a Basic Seminar in Educational Practical Experience class, with some first year students of the School of Education. The school principal posed the following problem to the university students, who were somewhat nervous because it was their first time visiting a school as prospective educators.
The principal said, “Please make words that express what you feel is good education and bad education by changing the “教(kyo)” in “教育(kyoiku; education)” to another kanji which has the same “kyo” pronunciation.
At the School of Education at Kumamoto University, we seek students who want to come together and think about the state of education and the community. Our slogan is, “Raising students for a brilliant future”.
