According to World Bank data, Japanese teachers increased by 46.5 per cent in the US, 45.9 per cent in UK and 43.7 per cent in China. Nearly 250,000 women added to the Japanese payroll that now includes 27.72m female full-time and part-time employees ├óÔé¼ÔÇØ the highest since the data started being collected in 1953.
