According to the survey, 43.4% feel that the learning environment is different from other people.The top reasons for this were "I didn't have an environment where I could concentrate on studying at home (32.0%)", followed by "I couldn't go to cram school or lessons for financial reasons (22.6%)" and "Teach me to study closely". There was no one to help (21.9%). ”“ There was a difference in the development of the digital environment at home and school (12.0%). ”
When asked if they felt that the difference in the learning environment had widened due to the corona sickness, 52.9% answered "feel" and 47.1% answered "not feel".68.0% of the respondents who have felt the difference in the learning environment answered that they "feel (= the difference widened due to the corona sickness)", and those who originally felt the difference in the learning environment were the corona. I feel that it has spread even further in the disaster.31.5% of the respondents answered that they had an "influence" on their own course due to the corona sickness.Regarding the impact of the corona sickness, "widening the range of industries that want to get a job (33.3%)" was the most common, followed by "the grades did not improve as expected and the entrance examination method was changed (19.7%)" and "the area where students went to school". I reconsidered (18.7%). "
Regarding the educational disparity, 48.9% answered "feel" and 51.1% answered "not feel".When you feel an educational disparity, you can go on to higher education depending on your family's financial situation, such as "the disparity in attending or not attending a cram school in terms of family income" or "when you see a friend who has to give up promotion due to the financial condition of your parents". Many people said that they gave up their promotion and felt an educational gap in the situation where they could not attend a cram school.In addition, there are differences between public and private schools, differences in learning environment, differences in class progress, etc., such as "differences between public and private facilities" and "differences in education received depending on the area (city or region) where you live". There was also a conspicuous opinion that there was a difference in education level.
When asked if the educational gap would widen in the future, "I think (51.2%)" greatly exceeded "I don't think (9.3%)".The most common reason for thinking so is that "the economic disparity of households is reflected in education (34.2%)".Next, "the education budget of the national and local governments is sluggish (17.6%)" and "the definition of educational inequality is unclear (14.6%)" were ranked high.Regarding the need to correct the education gap, 54.6% answered that it "needs to be corrected".What I think is necessary for this is "improvement of systems such as free higher education (48.0%)", followed by "strengthening the development of free learning support bases (33.8%)" and "strengthening online education (33.8%)". ) ”.
