In what seems to be a growing trend, Chiba city educational board announced yesterday that all municipal elementary, junior and senior high, and special needs schools will switch to a semester system from next April. The city carried out a study at eight schools this year and made use of data from the Iwate Prefecture city of Sendai, which has already implemented the change. The plan will be put into effect in a total of 179 schools. The announcement follows a similar one made earlier in the week by Yokohama.
