Do they really have schools like this in Japan? If so, how does this work? They had the same thing in Higurashi. I mean are they funded by the government or something because I can't see the yearly tuition of just five students being enough to pay for the expenses of the school.
>>
It just seems bizarre to me.
>>
Schools through lower secondary education are funded by the government, unless it is a private school. Private academies are usually funded by wealthy donors as well as student tuition, overseen by a "board". This is why some manga/anime refer to a "chairman" as if they're some kind of super-principal.
>>
And they don't really have schools like this in Japan, at least not very much. NNB is portraying the decline in birthrate by showing a school where student attendance is so low, it's become a one-room-schoolhouse type of school.

In reality, kids way out in bum-fucked countryside commute long hours to go to a larger school in a nearby city.
>>
There are schools on islands of my country which consist of literally one teacher and two students.
>>
>>100548754
There are schools like this in really remote parts of Canada. Except they have less ~moe~ and more inhalant abuse.
>>
>>100549417
Hm....maybe that's why things are so bright and sunny.
>>
>>100549218
>the decline in birthrate
Try urban migration
>>
>>100549902
Its a mixture of both actually.
>>
I've heard of a few schools like that (there was even an article about one that had only one kid) but I assume it doesn't happen much anymore since all those small villages are being merged into larger ones all the time now.

Somehow or another, all this plays heavily into nostalgia and wabi-sabi, which the 11s just freeken LOVE. Which is why NNB is doing fairly well over there. I'm hoping for a BR no-dub release here.

Lack of public education, other than some ghetto schools, is a strictly American thing.
>>
>>100550265
Most American schools are public.
>>
In the village, where my grandparents lived there was a school and all 10 classes have 30 pupil's in total (4-5 in each high school class, 1-2 in primary school). It's closed now. Russia.
>>
>>100549943
No, why would it be? There's no hint in the anime that the cities are becoming depopulated.
>>
>>100549943
1 of the families there has 3 kids, another has 2.

That's above average
>>
>>100551335
Correct. It's just that most people living in the countryside are oooold. The only ones who are young enough to have kids are having them, at least in NNB world.

Guess not

>>100551795
2 girls can't have kids together
>>
>>100551901
There's got to be some single farmers/farmers sons out there
Probably
>>
>>100551901
You better check that privilege.

>>100551901
Ni-chan is the only one who can repopulate their town. But he's a dirty otaku so it'll never happen. It's all very sad.
>>
I remember reading about some school with one student and one teacher. It was in some middle east shithole though.
>>
>>100552198
Israel?

>>100551901

It's all up to Glasses-kun to save the village. But by the looks of his room, he browses /a/ and hates 3DPD... He might even have a dakimakura.
>>
>>100551273
It doesn't need to be. It's fairly common knowledge that Japan has a very, very low birthrate (roughly 1.39 children per woman. The necessary rate to sustain a population is 2.1 per woman.)
>>
>>100552386
it's also common knowledge that urban migration depopulates many areas in Japan way faster than the low birthrate could do.
>>

Holy fuck are you retarded? In every country that's not a third-world one are schools including high schools funded by the government, and many if not most countries have govt-funded universities as well.

Well, my primary school had 5 to 7 kids per class. Still, it was quite a more cozy atmosphere than the 30 kids per class before I moved from that city to the countryside.

Sadly enough the school had to close a few years after due to lack of students applying. Always makes me a bit sad when I walk past that cold abandoned building where my grand childhood days used to take place.

That's life I guess.

I know that public schools exist, I just thought it was strange if the government was paying for this school that just had five students.
>>
>>100552919
Gumen for being rude. ;_;

Sure, it's the govt, they can't just tell the people "fuck you, take the train to the next school 100km away."

I recently heard Germany also has schools like that.
>>
>>100552919

It's strange to you that governments have to fulfill the obligation to provide education to children? Where do you live? Afghanistan?
>>
Government barely seems to pay for anything other than student food. Roof is leaking, floor is rotten, barely any inventory. I have no idea how they have chemistry lessons.
>>
>>100554063
schools with 5 pupils in germany? not gonna happen, the kids gotta commute to the next town.
>>
>>100554627

There is no second town on Heligoland.
>>
>>100554313
Government would usually solve this shit by putting them into some other school though. And wouldn't give shit that you need to commute for hours.
>>
>>100554861
apparently, they have still around 100 pupils at the school on Helgoland
>>
>>100555122
Wait we have an /a/non in Helgoland?
>>
>>100556455
who knows? I'm not, but >>100554861
made me google that info
