There is one junior high school boy who developed Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity(EHS) and Multiple Chemical sensitivity(MCS). It is difficult to learn in the school for him, due to radiated EMF from the electronic/electrical equipment in school. His teachers and friends come to his home, and helps his study now. But it is very difficult that he go to high school.
So, he is considering to go to a correspondence high school. But, he can’t use any public transportation and family car, due to his symptoms. He can’t learn via internet and radio which makes him ill. It is very difficult to enter in the classroom for an examination and a schooling, due to chemicals.
There are many children like him in Japan. His parents, Mr. & Mrs. Kobayashi, and their son will request the measurement and improvement in school to the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. Please let me know your name and country, if you approve this request, by 8,June, 2019.

1．Please let us know the results of a fact-finding survey on the number of elementary, junior high, senior high, and university students who are unable to attend school due to EHS or MCS, if the Ministry have conducted it.
In addition, if a fact-finding survey has not been conducted, please conduct the survey as soon as possible and inform to public.
2．Please provide the guidance and notifications on the measures that schools should take for EHS and MCS children that have been issued by the Ministry.
In addition, if there are plans to issue guidance and notifications in the future, please provide such information.
3．Please provide the details and information on specific details of the case where the symptoms of EHS or MCS are mild and it is possible to commute to school due to the consideration given by schools, teachers, boards of education, etc., if the Ministry is aware of them.
4．Please provide the content and information of specific measures taken by schools and boards of education for children with severe EHS and MCS who are forced to study at home, If the Ministry is aware of them.
5．As for schooling and examinations in the correspondence high schools, it is essential to study and implement a certain
number of times and hours in schools and classrooms. However, EHS and MCS children are not able to obtain the credits to graduate due to difficulties in learning in schools and classrooms. At
first, an entrance examinations and an interviews become difficult, then an entrance is also difficult. Please let me know if there is an alternative method such as visiting a teacher to learn,
taking an examination at home, or conducting a schooling.
In addition, if there is no alternative method for the implementation of schooling, please consider and prepare the system as soon as possible based on the Discrimination Act for Persons with Disabilities. Because, my eldest son will be going to high school on next year. Please also inform us of the details and results of these measures.
I have heard that there are some cases in which the implementation of schooling is not properly implemented.It is also necessary to create a system to prevent misuse, such as requiring the medical certificates and written opinions by doctors for children, including EHS and MCS.
