This free school established in 1985 was authorized as an NPO by the Tokyo city office in 1999. In 1992, the ministry of education indicated that it would leave the matter up to the principalfs discretion to determine the number of days required to go to the free school in contrast to the number of days required for ordinary schools, and in 1993 agreed that commuterfs tickets could be used by students. These developments indicate that social awareness of the problem of non-attendance at schools (absenteeism) has increased.
