Japan's Centralized Education System is Becoming Unsustainable.

Japan's huge, unwieldy, education bureaucracy is too large to make even the most fundamental decisions, and the Ministry of Education issues proclamations without concrete follow-through programs of training, initiation, or evaluation. Elementary school level English classes start with no follow through. Nursing schools are now supposed to offer more rounded curricula to reflect the number of graduates who are employed outside the health care field, but with no hint about how they should do that and still ensure their grads pass their national boards.

Decentralization is the only answer for solving these issues and many others, including the number of children who refuse to go to school at all.
