Japan does a FAR better job of teaching children throughout grade school education to have integrity and sound morals. Their schools are very different than U.S. schools, and in many key ways, for the better.
There are many other differences, such as the way homework and tests are administered and checked, the manner that classes are arranged, the fact that Japanese students stand and greet their teacher at the beginning and end of each class, and the way that students are trusted in empty classrooms alone — even in kindergarten.(July 17, 2014). 13 ways Japanese schools are different from American ones.

These differences in education lead to some rather astonishing differences in the character of Japanese people when they enter society as adults:
Naturally, when a person in Japan decides to commit a crime anyway, despite their absolute best efforts of trying to raise them as a model citizen, the Japanese government gets more than a little ticked.
Seriously: Japan imprisons 39 out of 100,000 citizens, where as in the U.S. it’s closer to 655 out of 100,000 citizens, a rate that’s 17 times higher.
And it’s not because Japan lets their criminals run free on the streets, either. That’s the U.S., as well. If I had to estimate, I’d say the U.S. raises between 20 to 30 times as many inherent criminals than does Japan.
Japan simply raises far fewer criminals in the first place. Instead, they raise their children very well, whereas here in America, many cultures raise their children to be criminals.
America raises far more inherent criminals, people who have little or no regard for law and order. Quite frequently, they grow up with an actual hatred for law and order, for civilized society, and little is done to correct their “education,” a serious infection of idealistic nonsense brought to you courtesy of liberal teachers throughout the United States of America. Don’t get me wrong: The U.S. remains in the top half, if not the top 25% of all nations. Given the fact we used to be #1 in academics, however, that’s no comfort at all, and the fact of the matter is, many U.S. teachers convey idealistic nonsense, if not patently false information in violation of repeated calls for Truth in Education Acts.
Thus, the next time you see wanton violence, destruction, and even murder of law enforcement officers and private citizens, THANK A TEACHER. Not all teachers, mind you. Just the idealistically nonsensical ones who broke from America’s highly successful and long-standing learning from, respect for, and adherence to the high integrity and sound morals of Bible.
If America is to survive, we have GOT to STOP raising criminals. Not only are they killing us, literally, but their wanton acts of violence and destruction have decimated several American cities over the last six months, even to the point where their actions have plunged their own cities into ruin, a depth of self-destruction the likes of which the United States has never seen before.
Japan does NOT raise criminals. On the rare occasion that a criminal fails to be reformed by their prison system, they don’t mess around. They EXECUTE them, putting them out of their own — and society’s — misery.
As for Reading, Mathematics and Science, we’re more or less holding our own against Japan, slightly ahead of them in Reading, but behind in Math and Science.
The problem is, a strongly, healthy society requires much more than solid scores in the 3 Rs. It requires a whole collection of ethics which sustain society as a whole, and the ridiculous collection of self-serving “ethics” held by most of the protestors and all of the rioters is NOT it.
For America to survive, we have GOT to stop the mind-bogglingly STUPID path of excessive individualism and selfishness, and we need to do it NOW.
So, what do we replace it with? Japanese philosophy?
Of course not. How about an amalgam of part Japanese work ethic, part U.S. military unit cohesion and esprit de corps, and part good old-fashioned American values of hard work and community togetherness?
