Education is the tool used to build or reconstruct national identity. It is happening again in Tokyo under Fascist Ishihara regime where it has become compulsory for teachers to pay respect to the flag and sing the national anthem.

Today I went to see the following documentary- Watashi wo ikiru-about 3 amazing teachers who took their stand and refused to bow down to the authoritarian nature of the Tokyo government.

The thing that gets me about this issue is why they had to struggle on their own? Their colleagues did not have the courage to stand by them………..
