1 in 3 Middle School Students Don't Study at Home

A recent survey has shown that 32.8% of Tokyo junior high school students say they don't study alone at home. The survey, carried out by Benesse, also revealed that about three quarters of the 1,500 students who took part believe that "there's more to life than studying." 21.9% said they study at home between 1 and 2 hours a day, and 18.9% study less than an hour. Those who study 2-3, 3-4, or 4 or more hours a day totalled 26.5%.
