Many Students Not Prepared for University Study

A recent survey has shown that over 60% of private third-level teachers think that their students lack basic academic abilities, according to the Daily Yomiuri. The number is an increase of more than 20% over the last survey six years ago. The survey included responses from 28,000 full-time teachers at private universities and junior colleges, about 36% of the national total, and was carried out by the Japan Universities Association for Computer Education.
