| Guidance administration covers non-authoritative and non-binding administrational actions such as guidance, advice and assistance. In recent years, educational administrators are also expected to operate in a non-authoritative manner so that educational activities can evolve freely and creatively with respect for the relative independence and autonomy of Board of Education and schools.
Key aspects of the task to provide guidance and advice regarding regional ownership of education includes:
*Avoid constraining the judgments by prefectures and municipalities;
* Emphasize supportive functions, such as collection and provision of information;
* Stress correction of educational administration and school management and administrative aspects that violate laws, such as the Basic Act on Education and School Education Act
