Asahi Shinbun Digital (23 March 2012)

“The Osaka prefecture council passed three acts — Basic Act on Educational Administration, Basic Act on Prefecture School Act, and Basic Act on Teachers — on March 23. They will take effect April 1.  These acts will bring about drastic changes in educational administration and practice in Osaka. The changes include: 1) the governors’ increased involvement in educational affairs, 2) the elimination of school districts, 3) the implementation of a school and teacher evaluation system,  and 4) raising the penalty for teacher misconduct.”
