The author, a principal of a merged public elementary and junior high school, noticed thatelementary school children who did not have major issues in school, began showing signs ofproblematic behaviour and absenteeism upon entering junior high school. This issue is referredto as the 中１ギャップ chu-ichi gyappu [the transitional “junior high school first year gap”between elementary and junior high school education]. This paper discusses an attempt toresolve this issue based on the theme of fostering “children who pave their own paths to thefuture.”Causes of the “junior high school first year gap” are examined and the effectiveness ofpractices implementing concrete strategies to resolve the issue based on literature and previousstudies are discussed. The author’s views are based on Tsunesaburo Makiguchi’s educationalperspective of “living a life of value-creation” found within his value-creating pedagogy, SokaEducation.
