In March 2018, the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology revised the curriculum guidelines for high school, which will be applied in 2022.

This could be problematic given that a lot of 'temporary teachers' and 'teachers without a proper license' teach Informatics, and more than half of the teachers that teach Informatics are in charge of multiple subjects.
