November 4, 1935 Gyeongseong Ilbo (Keijo Nippo)
Korean-born the absolute majority
Unusual statistics found in investigation of Pyongyang Girls’ High School
Possible obstacles in securing the national ideology
The Ministry sees this as a problem
Pyongyang – A survey was conducted at the Pyongyang Girls’ High School investigating the birth places of the 700 students and whether or not they have visited Japan proper since 6 years of age. Of the 700 total students, 482 were Korean-born, 189 were born in Japan proper, 6 were born in Taiwan, 4 were born in Kwantung Leased Territory, 12 were born in Manchukuo, 6 were born in China, and 1 was born in Russia. Only 232 have ever visited Japan proper, and 468 have never visited Japan proper. In other words, it’s been found that two thirds of the student body have never seen Japan proper, which suggests that it will be very difficult to cultivate a national conviction in the student body. Thus, the school decided to try to secure the national conviction of the students of Pyongyang Girls’ High School by giving them opportunities henceforth.
