Part of the program was changed. (Updated October 27, 2011)
The Great East Japan Earthquake seriously damaged schools in the disaster areas. Every effort has been made toward the earliest reconstruction in these schools.
The symposium will offer an insight into the innovations in school administration and educational instruction that the schools in these areas have made or are seeking to make against various difficulties, and an insight into case examples of education field initiatives in various nations that have suffered large-scale disasters. It will disseminate information across Japan and the rest of the world about the educational activities in the disaster areas, and the sincerity that underpin them. Finally, the symposium will also represent an opportunity to obtain some suggestions on the ideal formats for future educational policy from educational practices that have been conducted under extraordinarily difficult circumstances.
