The Future for Teach for Japan | Yusuke Matsuda | TEDxICU

家庭環境や経済的環境によって人生が左右されることなく、すべての子どもたちが夢へ向かって成長できる教育環境を。そうしたTeach For Japanの挑戦を前進させているのは、日々現場でひとりひとりの子どもたちと向き合う、ひとりひとりの教師の存在です。「教育は人なり」—今こそ、私自身の、Teach For Japanの活動の根底にあるその原点が大切だと思っています。

Yusuke Matsuda is the founder and chief executive officer of a non-profit organization specializing in education called Teach For Japan. A graduate of Nihon University, Matsuda began his career as a physical education teacher at a private junior and senior high school in Tokyo. There, he devised a special curriculum “Sports English,” teaching his Japanese students completely in English. Next in his career, he served as an analyst of educational policies for the Board of Education in Chiba Prefecture. Then he continued his education at Harvard Graduate School of Education and completed his masters in educational leadership. Upon his return to Japan, he worked as consultant at Pricewaterhouse Coopers Japan before establishing Teach For Japan. At the World Economic Forum at Davos, he was named a Global Shaper. In 2013, he published his book Guuguru, Dizunii Yori mo Hatarakitai “Kyoushitsu” (trans: More than Google and Disney, The Place I’d Rather Work is the Classroom).
