A Japanese Eton

Toyota Motor Corp.'s Shoichiro Toyoda and other business leaders are building a combined middle and high school modeled on Britain's Eton and Harrow public schools, with a stated goal of "fostering human resources capable of leading Japan in an era of a declining birthrate." The construction of "Kaiyo Academy" is under way in the city of Gamagori, Aichi Prefecture, and the school is scheduled to open next April. A soccer field is also being built. (Kyodo)
