Education Quality in Japan Questioned Nation Created 'Degree-ocracy' in Stress on Prosperity, Ex-Official Says BY SAM JAMESON Times Staff Writer TOKYO In its postwar stress on prosperity, Japan has sacrificed quality in its educational system to such an extent that it has created a national environment of "degree-ocracy" rather than democracy, former Education Minister Michio Nagai believes.

Today a college degree, "the passport to a better paying job," has become more important than the contents of the education it is supposed to represent, Nagai said in a recent address here. Universities enrolling as many as 22 times the number of students they are equipped to educate in classrooms, students paying staggering sums up to $100,000 for admittance to medical schools, and the overpowering prestige of Tokyo University have combined to warp educational values, he said. 'This is not the educational system of a civilized nation," Nagai declared. Nagai, the only nonpolitician in former Prime Minister Takeo Miki's cabinet, said Japan had succeeded in establishing "mass education" after World War II. While only 50 of junior high school graduates went on to high school in the late 1940s, last year 93 did, and nearly all of them ultimately graduated.

While only 10 of high school graduates entered college after the war, 34 now go on to a higher education, one of the highest ratios in the world. (In the United States, about 47 of the 18- to 21-year-old age group is enrolled in institutes of higher learning.) Japan has doubled its institutions of higher learning from 498 after the war to 998 today. Nagai, now an editorial writer for a major newspaper, found little comfort in the numerical achievements. "The compulsory education system (through the ninth grade) is fairly well planned," he said, "but looking at the universities, I am sad to say the contents are merely mediocre." Nagai said he saw hope, however, in the interest the nation's mass media was displaying in the quality of education and in the broad public debate now sweeping the country, a debate he tried to inaugurate while education minister. "Perhaps (through the current debate) we can decide whether we are to be a democracy or a Pf lif bAN LUIS OftSPOt BAKfRsfClD i rwcMTE" nueasn COID WAM STATIONARY OCClUOfD SANT.

tation This is just a beginning, however, and the fruits of such discussions won't be seen for 20 years or more," he said. While education minister, Nagai had officials check the enrollments of private universities, which educate 80 of the nation's college students, to make sure they were meeting standards for government subsidies. Although the standards allow universities to enroll up to six times the number of students for whom they have classroom space, Education Ministry officials found a university in Osaka with an enrollment 22 times its physical capacity, he said. "You may wonder how we found out this fact. There is only one day when all students come to school graduation day.

And they all line up smiling to have their pictures taken. My staff brought an album from each college and we counted the smiling faces in the pictures." Students at such universities, he said, get no education, but they do get a degree. "The degree is more important than the education. It is the passport to a better paying job," he said. It is a passport required by the nation's business firms and even the government civil service, which refuse to consider anyone without a college education for promotion to senior posts even on merit later in life.

"Japanese consumers judge products by the contents of the package. But they judge people by what they are supposed to be, not by what they actually are. A degree is of more value than the individual who holds it. "The present reminds me of the end of the medieval period. There were many churches, but the people were so simple they thought they could get rid of their sins by buying indulgences.

Today there are many schools but the people are so unlearned they think they can (get an education) by buying diplomas," Nagai said. The problem of meeting the growing demand for higher education has been left to private institutions, which are poorly financed. Medical schools, in particular, have been neglected by the government, he said. "The United Nations says there should be 150 doctors for each 100,000 population, but Japan does not have that many doctors. The government has not planned enough public medical schools.

As a result, each student entering a private medical school is required to 'donate' sums of up to $100,000 to the school," Nagai said. Who can afford such a sum? "Doctors," Nagai replied to 'Students may not become good doctors, but they will become loll free telephone servii is available to Times readers in Los Angeles and Orangp ties for starting ery problems, billing mbjrwa Hon or an questions relating to the home deluer of 'jur newspap'-r Pl-ase 'all tf-nunibfff listfj for our arvj Courteous operators ar- on dut ever ria of vir Fjr prompt redeliver ot newspapers, fa1! before a m. on eeirjas awl a m. on Sun'M Monday through Friday 6:30 a.m to p.m. Saturday 730a.m.

More than 70 of the students in Japan's medical schools are the children of doctors, he said. "The (students) may not become very good doctors, but they will become rich," he said. The same kind of government neglect, he added, has led to a concentration of prestige in degrees from the University of Tokyo. "The United States has about 20 important universities.

Many students may like to go to Harvard but they can be just as successful (later in life) if they go to Berkeley," he said. In Japan, just as there is only one great mountain, Fuji, there is only one great university, Tokyo, he said. When it was established as the first government-supported university 100 years ago, only about 5 million of Japan's 32 million people could realistically consider sending their children to the University of Tokyo, he said. "Today there are 110 million Japanese, and all of them could (afford to) think of sending their children to Tokyo. Therefore, there should be at least 20 universities equal in stature to Tokyo.

This is a simple calculation, but one which Japanese officials have failed to make over the past 100 years," Nagai said. (More than 90 of the highest ranking officials in Japan's Finance, Foreign, and International Trade and Industry ministries were graduated from Tokyo University, contributing to its overwhelming prestige and the intense competition for entrance.) "This is not the educational system of a civilized nation. It has happened because of our one-track-mind kind of approach 'It would be nice for Japan to become wealthy. It would be nice for Japan to be the nation with the second largest gross national product in the "The way Japan became prosperous reminds me of the way Japan went into war at the cost of many sacrifices. The one-track mind of the Japanese led to the war We were a homogeneous people with a national broadcasting system and a unified educational system.

The people were easily united to seek one national goal. "When we started our one-track-minded pursuit of economic growth, the mass media helped promote the idea and business and government worked together to achieve the goal," he said. Failure he said, came when the ruling Liberal Democratic Party continued to pursue growth even after Japan had achieved relative affluence. Charleston, C.
