I got to visit the students many times. Most of them seemed excited and happy to be working. I think it's a great idea. Ninth grade students in Japan have to start thinking about what they want to study and do with their lives, so they can apply to high school. I don't know what I would have done if I had to figure out my future at age 14 or 15. I'm curious to know what would you have selected at age 14 or 15 - please comment.
