Abstract: In the next version of the senior high school curriculum guidelines officially announced by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) in 2018, it is indicated that financial education will be made more substantial. However, the reality is that whether financial education is adequately conducted in senior high schools or not is dependent on the views of senior high school teachers. Accordingly, we carried out a survey in December 2018 among 1,000 teachers at senior high schools (including not only teachers of subjects such as social studies and home making course that are strongly related to financial education, but also teachers of all subjects). The purpose of this paper is to report the summary results of that survey.
