[Survey] Can correspondence high schools use time for what they want to do? Investigating the image of correspondence high schools among 300 students by age group
Is there a change in the image of correspondence high schools between generations? -Survey sequel 2022 version-
CRISK Co., Ltd. (Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo, President: Norihisa Yamashita), which operates the communication high school search site “Tsuushinsei High School Navi (https://www.tsuushinsei-navi.com/)”, will open in 2021. As a continuation of the survey, we conducted an image survey of correspondence high schools targeting 300 people nationwide aged 15 to 69 (50 people in each age group from teens to 60s).
According to the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology’s “School Basic Survey,” about 7.5% of all high school students will attend correspondence high schools in 2022. In other words, about 1 in 13 people choose a correspondence high school. Comparing 2010 and 2022, the number of students increased by 127% in the last 12 years. The number of schools also increased by 131%. Furthermore, in the COVID-19 pandemic, the progress of digitalization in society as a whole, such as telework and online classes, has made it possible to continue learning without the conventional style of attending school.
Therefore, as a continuation of the 2021 survey, Correspondence High School Navi surveyed 300 people aged 15 to 69 nationwide (50 people in each age group from teens to 60s) about the current image of correspondence high schools. I took a questionnaire.

■ 35% of people in their 20s and younger answered that they have someone close to them who attends a correspondence high school [Image 1
Q1 In response to the question, “Do you or anyone around you attend or used to attend a correspondence high school?”, the overall responses were “yes” (18.33%) and “no” (81.67%). As a result, 35% of people in their 20s or younger answered “Yes”.
Compared to the average of 10% who are in their 30s or older, it can be seen that there are a high percentage of young people who attend or have attended a correspondence high school.
Percentage by age group of those who attend or used to attend correspondence high school
While the number of students at correspondence high schools is on the rise, there are many students in their teens and 20s who are students, and there is a slightly higher number among those in their 40s who are parents.
■ People in their 20s and younger tend to have more positive impressions, and the image of people in their 50s and older improves [Image 3
In Q2, about the image of correspondence high schools, 45% answered “very good” or “good”, and 55% answered “not so good” or “not good”. Looking at the ratio of “very good” and “good” by age group, the ratio of students in their 20s and younger who have students who attend or used to attend a correspondence high school has slightly decreased from the previous survey, but has changed significantly. However, the percentage of those in their 50s and above increased significantly. Although there were some changes over the years, it can be seen that overall there has been little change from last year.

Q3 In the question “What kind of students do you have in a
correspondence high school?” decreased from the %.
On the other hand, the answer that increased the most from the previous time was “People who want to spend time doing what they want” (28.67%).
Percentage of respondents who “work or work part-time” by age group (compared to the previous survey)
Percentage of people who want to spend time doing what they want to do (compared to the previous survey)
It can be said that the image of correspondence high school students who study while working is gradually changing to the image of students who challenge their goals and dreams, such as doing what they want to do or performing arts activities.
■Summary of survey contents
I have seen the image of correspondence high school by age. Continuing from the previous survey, a large percentage of young people have students who use correspondence high schools close to them, and it was found that they maintain a good image compared to other generations. Also, this time, a new improvement in the image was seen in the age group of 50 and over.
Currently, among correspondence high schools, Metaverse schools where students can go to school with avatars have been born, and schools that respect the interests of each student and provide a variety of education are increasing one after another. The number of students is expected to grow further in the future. Each school will be required to clarify the differences and merits of other schools, as well as the school system.
Parents and students should not be too caught up in the image that “high school = full-time high school”, and consider correspondence high school as one of the options for entering high school as an opportunity to expand future possibilities.
