Saturday’s Nikkei claimed in a front-page story that the GOJ and the ruling coalition have agreed not to shift the start of the school year from April to September at least this year in the absence of sufficient deliberation and budget. They are reportedly afraid of causing turmoil at schools by implementing a September start this year. However, they are still planning to accelerate discussions with the goal of changing the decades-old system in 2021 or later.
