Temporary transfer to another special needs school with such a function is not uncommon if medical assistance is required for a shorter period.

By the revision of the School Education Law, the system that was divided into "blind school", "deaf school" and "nursing school" until March 2007, 3,2007It has been integrated into a "special needs school" since April 4. This name change nominally eliminates the division based on the functional differences between schools. Therefore, at each special needs school, as stipulated by the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology,Visually impaired,Deaf person,Intellectually Handicapped Individual,Physically handicapped, Education for sick people (including physically weak people) is to clarify what the school does (Article 73 of the School Education Act). It is said that these education will meet the special educational needs of each person regardless of the type of disability.Special support educationIt is said that it will be carried out based on the philosophy of. Education for two or more different types of persons with disabilities may be provided. However,Public school, The labor costs for faculty and staff must be calculated strictly in accordance with the law, so the education to be conducted is mainly determined.[3].. In addition, a school that handles multiple educational fields in one school"Colocated school"It is called (However, even if it is advocating that it is dealing with multiple educational areas, the fact is that if it is biased to one, it will not be treated as a "collocated school").

In addition, special support schools are defined not only to provide education to enrolled students, but also to provide advice and support regarding the education of students enrolled in local kindergartens, elementary, middle and high schools, so-called "center function". Are[4].. Conventional obstacle[Annotation 3]に 加 え て,Developmental disorders[Annotation 4]We will also provide comprehensive and overall consideration and support to children such as these in the community and school.[Annotation 5].. However, it has been pointed out that it is not clear in which educational area special support schools actually deal with children and students with developmental disabilities (because there is no intellectual delay, it is not a school with intellectual disabilities, Illness that remains because I am not free[Annotation 6]Although some experts say that the definition itself is not made, its categorization remains unclear. Currently, special support schools for people with intellectual disabilities are mainly providing support, and other school types are mainly providing support for people with multiple disabilities with developmental disabilities). With the growing interest in special needs education, each prefecture was expanded to include special needs schools, branch schools, and branch schools in high schools. Mainly the school buildings that were no longer used due to the consolidation of high schools were rebuilt and special support schools were newly established.

The age of students in elementary and junior high schools is often wider than in elementary and junior high schools. There are also cases in which older students are intentionally welcomed,AgeismThere are many parts that are out of the effect of.

Many children with intellectual disabilities with autism are enrolled in special needs schools. In addition, if you are sick or physically weak, you need to consider receiving education at a special needs school (sick) depending on your condition.

However, autism may be considered as having intellectual disability if there is no delay in intellectual development if there is no appropriate medical treatment before entering school. Accidentally warns against autism being targeted for special needs schools[6].

Autism without intellectual disability,Emotional disorder,Language disorder,Learning disability(LD),Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder(ADHD) does not correspond to the degree of disability that can be enrolled in a special needs school.

Revision of the system for determining school attendance

Prior to 14 (2002), all persons with certain disabilities were supposed to attend special needs schools. However, in the case of special circumstances such as the establishment of a certified enrollment system and the provision of facilities for elementary and junior high schools due to the revision in 14 (2002), exceptionally, it is not certified as a special needs support school. It became possible to enter elementary and junior high schools as academics, and the number of persons with disabilities enrolled in elementary and junior high schools continued to increase.

In addition, with the revision in 25, the basic concept of the School Education Law Enforcement Ordinance, which means that children with certain disabilities are generally enrolled in special needs schools, has been revised. The committee has been revised to a mechanism to judge and decide either elementary and junior high school or special support school after thoroughly examining individual children and students based on the state of disability etc.[7]After that, enrollment of students with disabilities in public elementary schools increased significantly.

In this way, the enrollment destination is ultimately decided by the municipal education support committee, so even if there is some disability, enrollment in a special needs school is not necessarily designated. Of the persons with disabilities surveyed and deliberated, less than 2% are judged to have the degree of disability who can enter a special needs school. Only about 7% of the persons with disabilities who are subject to deliberation are actually enrolled in special needs schools, as only about 13% are designated to attend special needs schools.[8].

In addition, due to the revision of the School Education Law Enforcement Ordinance, the school education law enforcement ordinance No. The table of the degree of disability in the preceding paragraph specified in Article XNUMX-XNUMX no longer has the function as "school attendance standard", but it still has the function as "degree of disability that can be admitted to a special school".[9].

HoweverDonationSchool management became unstable because it was based on financial resources from1879(Meiji 12) In April, the installer was transferred to Kyoto Prefecture.Kyoto Prefectural SchoolIt became.

Around 1875 (Meiji 8), a group of volunteers called Rakuzenkai started a campaign to establish a blind school for the education of the blind, and in March 1876 (Meiji 9), the governor's name was granted. In July 3, construction of a school building started in Tsukiji. In February 1878 (Meiji 11), the school name was set as "Rakuzenkai Kokuinin," and classes started. In June of the same year, deaf children were also added. In 7 (Meiji 1880), the school name was changed to "Rakuzenkai Kokuinin", but management became difficult due to business development, and in 13 (Meiji 2) it became a school under the direct control of the Ministry of Education "Tokyo Blind School" Renamed. laterTokyo University of EducationBecame an affiliated school ofUniversity of Tsukuba Special Visual Support School-University of Tsukuba Special Auditory School for HearingIt has become.

The Ministry of Education established the revised Elementary School Ordinance in October 1890 (Meiji 23) and established the provisions regarding the establishment and abolition of blind school. The number of schools for the deaf has also increased gradually, with four schools in 10 (Meiji 1897) and 30 schools in 4 (Meiji 1907).

It was pointed out that the same school was taught the completely different disabilities, blindness and deafness, and the Ministry of Education in April 1909 (Meiji 42) partially revised the school system under direct control and established a new Tokyo school for the blind. In March of the following year, the conventional Tokyo Blind School was abolished and the Tokyo Deaf School was established. This was the pioneer of separation of the blind and the deaf. In August 4 (Taisho 3), the edict of the "Ordinance for the Blind School and the Deaf School" was enacted, and the Ordinance of the Ministry of Education "Public Private Blind School and Deaf School Regulation" was promulgated. For the first time, these measures separated the blind school into two schools, the blind school and the deaf school.

1932 (Showa 7) Tokyo Municipal Komei School (currentTokyo Metropolitan Komei Gakuen) Is established in Setagaya Ward (Japan's first school for the physically disabled)[10].

In March 1947 (Showa 22), the School for the Deaf became a deaf school under the School Education Law, which was promulgated at the same time as the Basic Education Law, and became a school for compulsory education for deaf children. At this time, a system of "school for the disabled" was created for people with intellectual disabilities, physically handicapped people, and sick people (including physically weak people). In this way, three schools, "blind school," "deaf school," and "school for the disabled" were legalized as schools for special education (current special education).

1979Since the former school for the disabled is not a compulsory educational institution, it targets only people with mild disabilities, and those with severe or multiple disabilitiesEnrollment delay or exemptionAs a result, I was waiting at my home or a facility for the disabled. Since the transition to compulsory education in 1979, people with severe and multiple disabilities have been enrolled in school for the disabled, but exclusion of children with disabilities was also seen in local ordinary schools. Criticism that it is still separate education is still seen[11].. On the other hand, there are also cases where a school for children with disabilities is set up in regular schools such as elementary schools and junior high schools to accept specialized teachers, and children with disabilities are accepted in regular classes.

On the other hand, due to compulsory education at school for disabled children, the enrollment ratio of people with severe and multiple disabilities is increasing. There was also a situation where students with mild disabilities could not be fully educated. For this reason, some prefectures haveVocational education-Professional educationPositioned as a placeHigh school(Currently,High SchoolOrHigh school..A special support school for high schools only) was newly established from the existing high school for the disabled.At that time, as a general rule, only persons with disabilities can enter, edit, or transfer to a high school (high school).Most of the prefectures in this school require students who can go to school by themselves as a condition for admission.

In Japan's education, many kinds of treatment due to disabilities have been used in the past.2007On April 4, all school types that educate people with disabilities were unified into "special support schools."As a result, many schools have changed their school name to "(special) support school."However, since it is not a mandatory regulation, there are many places where the old school name remains the same.


publicThere are mainly prefectural and municipal, union-owned special support schools, and public elementary and junior high school teachers are specially assisted schools (often You can transfer to a special needs school that provides education for people with intellectual disabilities, but there are some areas where you need to pass a test before you can move to a prefectural special needs school. In addition, the number of special needs schools that provide education for the visually impaired, the deaf, the physically handicapped, and the sick is limited. Transfer destination is limited. As a result, some teachers may have longer years of service at a particular school. In particular, there are often only one special support school for the visually impaired and the hearing impaired in the prefecture.

Of special needs schoolTeacherIs, in principle,Special Needs School TeacherLicense and license corresponding to each part (kindergarten teacher,Elementary school teacher,Junior high school teacher,High school teacherOne ofTeacher license) Must have bothEducation staff license lawStipulated in. However, because the provisions of Supplementary Provision 16 of the same law have been watered out under the condition of "for the time being", they do not necessarily hold a license for a special needs school teacher.

Faculty of EducationIn the teacher training course, it is difficult to obtain a teacher's license from a special needs school unless you are aspiring to special needs education since you entered the university. In recent years, to receive a license from a special needs school teacherLicense Law Certification Course(PrefectureBoard of educationLed),University correspondenceThe number of teachers who hold a license for a special needs school teacher is also increasing. However, in the area of ​​"education regarding visual impairment",2012Currently, there is no university that is approved for the course, so acquisition through distance learning (including "addition of new education area") is not possible. By the way, in the area of ​​"education about hearing impairment"2012There is only one school in the correspondence course at the time (Because there is no exemption for prior and subsequent guidance unless you have more than 1 years of work experience in a special needs school, it will be held at the end of the yearschoolingIs required. In addition, regardless of the number of years, there is a course certification relationship for employees working at any of the schools for the visually impaired or for special support classes at general schools, and they are not exempt from exemption, including schooling.[12]). Therefore, acquiring a license from a special needs school teacher through distance learning is, in effect, ``education related to intellectual disability,'' ``education related to physical disabilities,'' and ``sickness (including physical weakness), which is equivalent to the former school for disabled children. Three areas of "education about" are targeted.

Moreover, in recent years, it is possible to obtain a license for a teacher of special needs school by completing the graduate school of teaching profession by those who are already teachers or general bachelors.


For special needs schoolsDormitoryMay be installed side by side. In particular, there are few special support schools for the hearing impaired and the visually impaired, with only one or two locations in each prefecture, and many students have difficulty in attending school because their homes are in remote areas. Without trainingElectric train,busBecause it is difficult to transfer to school[Annotation 18].. However, because the requirements for setting up dormitories are "areas where it is difficult to go to school at home," the tendency tends to be lower in metropolitan areas where transportation is more advanced. Also, the number of dormitories themselves is declining nationwide, and there are voices of concern about the future of dormitory education in inverse proportion to the importance of special support education.[Annotation 19].

Most of the dormitories are located on the same grounds as the school building, and the dormitories go to the school from there. In addition, take charge of life guidance in the dormitoryDormitory instructorAim for independence through life guidance (support for independence of daily activities such as changing clothes, meals, excretion, bathing) and self-government activities (activities in children's associations and out-of-school experience activities in ridges and groups) Education is provided by dormitory instructors.

However, for a remote family with boarding students, the round trip by car on the day is long,Traffic accidentIn order to increase the risk of causing illness, some local governments are focusing on building schools in the blank areas to avoid dormitories as much as possible.

Special support school costs

Compared to regular schools, special support schools require about 1 times the cost required for each child.

Public blindness, deafness, school for the disabled96,7298339 million yen8,621,840 Yen60,4530.62

Main reason why the cost required for running a school is high

  • The number of faculty members per student is considerably higher than in regular schools[Annotation 20].
  • Special teaching materials and equipment according to individual disability characteristics are required.
  • The school district is vast and there are many students who are unable to attend school on their own, so multiple shuttle buses are required.
  • School buildings should be accessible to children with disabilities, and consideration should be given to prevent dangerous accidents such as falls.[Annotation 21].
  • Many students need medical care, so some schools have nurses resident.

Local governmentDue to the financial difficulties in the above, there are cases where special support schools are reorganized (consolidated) due to the decrease in enrolled children and students. However, the number of children enrolled in special needs schools is increasing overall. Therefore, many local governments are increasing the number of special needs schools.

Change school name

The blind school, the deaf school, and the school for the deaf who changed their names to "Special Needs School" in April 2007, when the revised School Education Law was enforced in Japan, established 4 out of 916 existing schools and newly established in FY182. Stayed at 2007 out of 11 schools[16].
In Osaka Prefecture, "support school" and "special" are not included in the name.

The opinion of “opposite school name change” can be seen in special needs schools that are aimed only at the hearing impaired. Formerly Deaf School,Differential communityThe graduates usually have a strong attachment to their alma mater. On the other hand, in recent years, some deaf schools in Japan have changed the school name from “deaf school”, “deaf school” to “special school for the deaf”, etc. It has developed into a discussion with.

As the sentiment of those who object to the name change, the word "deaf" or "deaf" is regarded as a part of their own identity, and they are proud of being a deaf person and the word "special support" is used.Healthy personSometimes it is regarded as a negative word that is supported by, and there are cases where the name was changed without understanding the sentiment of these Deaf people.[17].
