As the population continues to decline, Japanese educational institutions are trying to keep existing students and try to reduce the number of employees as much as possible. As for the number of Canadian students, this is basically a long-lost thing in the school. A large amount of teacher resources and housing equipment are idle, and there seems to be no possibility to find an export in the future.
Why not cooperate with Chinese schools, send students to study in China, and part of China’s capital to participate in the operation of Japanese schools? Some Chinese schools and enterprises have seen this opportunity and have sought cooperation in Japan. But unfortunately, Japanese schools can automatically withdraw from the education industry (disused school) after they have no students, but the author has not yet contacted schools that cooperate with Chinese schools.
Relevant information shows that Japan has 7,000 elementary schools, middle schools and high schools “discarded schools” by 2016, and then the number of abandoned schools is 500 per year. Up to now, there are at least 8,000 primary and secondary schools.
In Japan, primary and secondary school buildings are basically selected in the safest places. In the event of a natural disaster, citizens will first choose to go to school to take refuge. After the school was closed, the public’s refuge protection was greatly affected. It cannot be because the school is gone, and in the event of a natural disaster, the citizens have nowhere to go. This also caused the school to be very troublesome when it was closed, but the Japanese people’s metropolis held a negative attitude about whether to let foreign schools come to mergers and acquisitions.
The Asahi Shimbun reported such a thing on February 21, 2019:
In the vicinity of the city of Saitama, which is located next to the city of Tokyo, the city of Japan, the city of Japan, has decided to openly recruit the purchaser of the gymnasium of a primary school that had been abandoned in 1984 at a price of 13.406 million yen. Before the school was abandoned, the gymnasium covered by the primary school was used for five years. The primary school was closed. However, the public felt that the gymnasium could still be used. It was proposed to demolish other teaching facilities in the primary school and retain the gymnasium for public use. It has been 35 years since then, and the stadium is also old and needs to be dismantled. At this time, I want to sell the gymnasium, and no one has taken over.
If the subsidy of the city is 13.406 million yen, the real estate tax on the land will be 17.3 million yen in the next 10 years. The city did a detailed calculation before the baggage. In addition, it was a tender, and the one who received a small amount of the subsidy won the bid in the city. As a result, the city took out the subsidy in the form of a subsidy of 7.95 million yen.
In a certain period of time, providing a piece of land to enterprises free of charge, increasing local employment and raising the tax amount of corporate tax is not new in some countries, but it seems that it can only be seen in Japan. The collapse of the bubble economy and the sharp decline in the population have made Japan’s land worthless, and it is a hot potato in the hands of local governments.
However, most of the school’s buildings are covered by the government. Even in private schools, the government has certain subsidies for school buildings. Now that the school is closed, when the building needs to be sold to other companies or foreign legal persons, the government subsidy needs to be returned to the government. How does Sink Valley solve this problem? The relevant reports I saw in Japan have not been discussed in detail. But if it is a foreign school legal person, the situation will be even more different.
There is no policy ban on running a school with a Japanese school. However, when buying a shell like a Japanese school, it is necessary to pay a large amount of subsidies that were subsidized by the Japanese government in the early years. It is estimated that there are not many Chinese schools that are willing to pay this fee.
