|Improving the training of teachers at university|
In June1998the Educational Personnel Certifi-cation Law was revised,and the curriculum to train educationalists at universities was changed.
|Utilizing Diverse Methods of Employment|
In order to secure a diverse range of human re-sources rich in individuality,the boards of edu-cation of prefectures and designated cities are planning to diversify methods and standards of selection,aiming to place importance on char-acter appraisal.The employment schedule is also being accelerated.
In order to employ as teachers those people who have particularly excellent results or capabili-ties,and those with a wealth of experience,a number of prefectures and cities are implementing special methods of selection.
