Daily Reporter, Gr ntitld, Indiana, Tuesday, August 13, mi SCHOOL Classical Deadly discipline targeted . iWvlHV 11 IW truants and other youths troubled by bullying or emotional problems to schools like Sakai's, often on the advice of school officials. Media reports say Japan has more than 200 such institutions. No exact count is available because private schools are not required to register with the government and only a comparative few are inspected every year, said Tomoo Tanaka of the ministry's junior high school department. Ministry officials have announced that all such schools will be inspected because of the deaths on Kosagi Island. Sakai's school is on a beach secluded from the island's only village, population 40. The school seems spartan, but livable: a private, small straw-mat room for each of the three students, cold showers and an outhouse. The owner was a retiree with no special training or teaching experience. In a similar case in 1982, instructors at a private reform school run by yacht racer Hiroshi Totsuka were convicted of beating a 13-year-old to death. Less spectacular incidents occur with alarming regularity: a teacher broke a 12-year-old's arm because he thought the boy was bouncing a ball; a teacher punched and kicked a boy mistakenly accused of stealing about $6.50. t. Between 1985 and 1988, five students died at the hands of teachers who were enraged by such minor violations as using a hairdryer on a school trip. Japanese are generally treated with extreme permissiveness as babies, but once they enter school are often badgered on all sides: by parents anxious for success in exams, teachers enforcing strict discipline, classmates bullying each other into conformity. Hundreds of teachers are dismissed every year for inflicting injuries or physically punishing students, the Education Ministry reports. According to ministry statistics, the number of students who drop out of the educational pressure cooker has quadrupled since the late 1970s to a record 48,000 last year. Parents sometimes send chronic KOSAGI ISLAND, Japan (AP) -Two students caught smoking were locked into an unventilated freight container as punishment. Two days later, their bodies were removed. Their deaths from heatstroke July 29 have revived long-standing complaints about the rigid rural school system and prompted investigations of other facilities for troubled youngsters. 'Critics of Japan's educational system see it as part of a wider problem: the society's obsession with conformity, which they say comes at the high price of sacrificing individuality and sometimes lives. Yukio Sakai, 67, owned the Kazenoko Gakuen, or School for Children of the Wind on Kosagi Island, off western Japan. He was arrested after a 14-year-old boy and 16-year-old girl died of heatstroke after spending two days locked in the metal container. In Kobe last year, a zealous teacher trying to catch latecomers closed a quarter-ton school gate on a 15-year-old girl, crushing her skull. The teacher was fired and the school's principal resigned. students set show By The Daily Reporter "Magnum Opus," a chamber music ensemble from Greenfield-Central High School, will present its first concert of classical music Aug. 24 at the Chapel in Riley Park. The notes begin at 7 p.m. Musicians include Jarrett Anthony on the oboe and classical guitar; Beth Flood, violinist; Greg Irwin, pianist; and Christina Thompson, who will play flute. The group will perform quartets, solos, duets and trios of selections ranging from Shostakovich to Kreisler, Debussy to Beethoven, concluding with Pachelbel's Kanon. Inspired by Beth's mother and manager Alice Flood, the group was formed last year to provide an avenue for accomplished young musicians in the Greenfield community to combine their talents and enjoy rehearsing and performing classical music. These four musicians represent 37 years of study with their respective instruments. Endorsed bf the fine arts teahcers of G-C and backed by principal Bob Albano, Magnum Opus accepted opportunities to perform in part and as a quartet in school events and churches several times during the past year. Tickets for the public show Aug. 24 (a Saturday) are $2.50 and can be purchased by calling 462-4134. Tickets will not be available at the door.
