New SELHis Chosen

The education ministry recently announced the new batch of Super English Language High Schools (SELHis). 31 of the 52 schools that applied for the government-approved status, which brings research funding of about ¥35 million per school, were chosen. 17 of the schools are public, the other 14 private. Schools had to provide detailed proposals of educational ideas they wanted to focus on. For example, a school attached to Seirei Women's Junior College in Akita Prefecture will do research on a writing program to improve students' powers of expression in English using a digital portfolio. Others, such as Ina Gakuen High School in Saitama Prefecture and Miyakonojo Nishi High School in Miyazaki Prefecture, will build programs based around debating and negotiating skills.
