This week’s useful phrase is, “Education is (the) key to better relations I think.” I really agree with this. Most people are generally scared or nervous around things that are different to them – and so education about that thing makes us less scared. That’s why we say, “knowledge is power” because if you know why something is different to you, it is no longer so different, right?

Do you think the education in Japan needs to change in order to teach kids more about other cultures? That way, when they enter the global workforce or travel to other countries they will have more understanding about other people and other cultures? Is this kind of education already happening in Japan or is it not necessary? What do you think?
