The conclusion considers what can be learned from the difficulties encountered by educational reform in junior high schools, and its significance for our understanding of contemporary Japan. It argues that the advance of individualization is affected by the level of institutionalization of practices and beliefs in different social spheres. The conclusion finally discusses the varying notions of the group in junior high schools, arguing that these indigenous conceptual resources make it possible to work towards groups that support individual autonomy rather than produce disciplined individuals who are subordinate to the social whole.
