This is an excerpt from the U. N. document,
"THE PARALLEL REPORT
TO THE 3rd PERIODIC REPORT OF JAPANESE GOVERNMENT
SUBMITTED TO THE COMMITTEE ON ECONOMIC, SOCIAL AND CULTURAL RIGHTS (CESCR) ~MARCH 28, 2012.
 
     In 2010, the free high school tuition was realized. However, Korean high schools in Japan were “currently excluded” from the free tuition system, and as far as they are concerned, the free tuition has still been put off.  The first reason was a request from the state minister for abduction matters, the second reason was the bombardment incident caused by North Korea, and now the Japanese government says that free Korean high school tuition depends on “the future North Korean regime” after the death of Secretary General Kim Jong Il, though, in the meantime, the tuition of two newly-established ethnic schools except Korean high schools were made free of charge without any trouble.
     The Democratic Party administration imposed an additional tax for the deduction for specified dependents.  This caused the parents with children who go to Korean high schools to pay more tax than before.
     The condition of the free tuition is that the school provides a curriculum “similar to a high school course.” This means to satisfy an objective standard. The important thing is that the intervention in educational content is prohibited by the Fundamental Law of Education and that lessons based on free religious and historical views are guaranteed by the Private School Law.
     Regarding this problem, in the third-sixth observations of the Japanese government report on the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination held in March, 2010, the committee expressed concerns about the exclusion of Korean schools from free high school education tuition and made a recommendation of “no discrimination in the provision of educational opportunities” (Paragraph 22.a).
     We strongly request a recommendation by the committee that the Japanese government should make Korean high school tuition free of charge as soon as possible.
