Errors in Nuclear Promoting Side Readers for Primary School and Junior High School Students / 46 News (from Kyodo)

Side readers on nuclear plants used in primary and secondary schools, produced jointly Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) and Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, contains such descriptions as "[nuclear plants] can stand against large earthquakes and tsunamis" and "is firmly protected from leakage of radioactive materials". Minister of Education Yoshiaki Takagi  said in his press briefing on Friday (15 April 2011) that he would reconsider the content because there are "descriptions that do not match the fact".

[Translator's Note: The two side readers are: "wakuwaku genshiryoku land" (exciting land of nuclear power) for primary school and "challenge! genshiryoku world" (challenge! nuclear world). 30,000 copies of these side readers were distributed to primary and secondary schools all over Japan each year.

They were available from "Japan Atomic Energy Relations Organization" (JAERO) website but was quietly withdrawn from the site on 13th April, 2011. JAERO is related to MEXT.]
