More Schools Switching to Semesters

Asahi.com reported yesterday on the growing number of public schools switching from the trimester to the semester system. With two terms per year instead of three, the number of examinations and opening and closing ceremonies decreses. As a result, schools report that they are able to have more classroom time and find it easier to organize school events. The education ministry says that 9%#37; of public elementary schools, 10% of middle schools and 26% of senior high schools were using the semester system in the 2004 school year.
