CoCon Co., Ltd. provides innovative solutions to support learning for children who do not attend school!
*“CoCon” is a unique online learning service launched by CoCon Co., Ltd. to support children who do not go to school all over Japan! * CoCon Co., Ltd. (book: Kanda Sakuma-cho, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, CEO: Yuki Suzaki) is an education and learning support company that provides services such as online learning support for children who do not attend school and their parents. . CoCon has announced that it will launch a new online learning support service “CoCon” for elementary and junior high school students who are not attending school from April 1, 2024.

“Cocon” is an online service that supports the learning of children who do not attend school and introduces recommended teachers tailored to the characteristics of each child. All teachers are former school teachers with teaching licenses, and they work with students to determine learning goals and content. This allows children to engage in learning with independence. CoCon is characterized by its new approach to learning support for children who do not attend school.

Increasing number of children refusing to go to school and learning problems The number of children refusing to go to school is increasing nationwide, with a survey by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology revealing that there are approximately 300,000 children from the first grade of elementary school to the third year of junior high school. (Source: Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology) Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, “FY2020 Survey Results on Issues in Student Guidance, including Problematic Behavior and Refusal of Students”). The ratio of children not attending school to the total number of children is 3%, and this ratio is increasing every year. However, there is an issue of how to support the learning of children who cannot attend school. Research has shown that students who have experienced school refusal are more than 10% less likely to attend high school than students who have not experienced school refusal, and the impact of school refusal on academic performance is an important issue.
In an interview conducted by CoCon with people who have never attended school, comments such as “I don’t want to go to school, but I don’t hate studying,” “I want to take the high school entrance exam,” and “I want to study, but I don’t know where to start.” was asked.

Providing learning online tailored to each child who does not attend school Therefore, CoCon has decided to start “CoCon” on April 1, 2024 (Monday), with the cooperation of former teachers who have retired from schools, to support learning online for children who do not attend school.
At Cocon, staff with specialized qualifications such as truancy visiting support counselors provide counseling to children and their parents, and introduce recommended teachers that match the
characteristics of each child.
There are no predetermined textbooks or curriculum, and students and teachers work together to decide on learning goals and content. By doing so, children will be able to take charge of their learning.

You can achieve the education you want
One of the teachers said, “When I was a teacher, I was teaching more than 30 children by myself, and it was a heavy burden because I had to be aware of the progress of the class and the curriculum guidelines. I am able to take my time with it and express the joy of learning freely.I feel it is very rewarding because I am finally able to achieve the education that I always wanted to do.”

I finally found a service that suited my child.
A parent of a second-year junior high school student who has been using Cocon since April said, “Since last year, my child has started wanting to take the high school entrance exam.As a parent, I would like to support him, but he has been absent from school for a long period of time, so he is unable to attend cram school or communicate. I felt that it was difficult to catch up on my child’s learning in education.At COCON, former school teachers provide careful
instruction, which makes me feel at ease, which I am very grateful for.I think I have finally found a service that suits my child. We have received comments such as, “I will.”

Equal learning opportunities for all children
CoCon has the philosophy of “providing equal learning opportunities for all children” and operates based on goal 4 of the SDGs adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, “Quality education for all.” Through the online learning support service “Cocon,” we aim to create a society where diversity is mutually accepted, where children who do not go to school are provided with opportunities to learn freely outside of school, and where no one is left behind.
