Japan: Ministry Adopts Anti- Bullying Policy

An education ministry panel on Friday adopted a basic policy to deal with, and help prevent, bullying at school, calling on local governments to include external experts in new local anti-bullying bodies.

The basic policy was approved at the day’s meeting of the panel. Local governments and schools are now required to map out their own policies on school bullying, the panel said.

The law for the promotion of preventive steps and countermeasures against bullying, which took effect last month, allows local governments to set up committees on school bullying, comprised of members from schools, education boards and other organizations.
