On Sep 23rd, members of Ubiquitous Study Group came to Ogijima to watch the education documentary, Most Likely to Succeed. Many of the participants were elementary school teachers who teach in Kagawa prefecture, others work in related fields, and others were Ogijima islanders. A total of around 20 people attended to watch the film and join the discussion after the show.
“Ogijima, future education” project members saw this film for the first in June with parents on Ogijima. It was interesting as the discussions were more focused on issues in the current education system, disparity among families, and specific obstacles in order to achieve the goals.
