Japan's criticized history textbook suffers poor adoption
The book is widely slashed for glossing over Japanese aggression and colonial rule in Asia.
It's adoption rate this year was slightly higher than four years ago, but far from the publisher's target of 10 percent.
At the same time, the group's civic studies textbook will be used by 0.2 percent of all students, or an estimated 2,338 students.
