Japan's humble school lunch: social leveler and sacred cow
BY PHILIP BRASOR AND MASAKO TSUBUKU
Beyond the inculcation of good eating habits and an appreciation of wholesome food, Japan's school lunch program stresses the importance of community and helps children understand their responsibilities within the group.
Many states still see history teaching, and the inculcation of foundation myths, as a strategic imperative; others see it as an exercise in teaching children to think for themselves.
In 1931 the Hadow Report looked into the curriculum for English primary schools. It concluded, in Roseian terms, that “we must recognise the uselessness and the danger of seeking to inculcate inert ideas - that is, ideas which at the time when they are imparted have no bearing upon a child's natural activities of body or mind and do nothing to illuminate or guide his experience”. The report argued that “while there is plenty of teaching which is good in the abstract, there is too little which helps children directly to strengthen and enlarge their instinctive hold on the conditions of life by enriching, illuminating and giving point to their growing experience”.
