When liberated from the Japanese colony the first thing that Koreans in Japan do was establish a Korean schools.
In 1948, however, the Japanese government ordered the shutdown of Korean schools. The Korean schools across the country vigorously resisted and even reached death.

Seventy years later, the Korean schools are fighting another battle with the Japanese government.
The Japanese government has exclusively excluded the 'high school diploma system', which makes tuition fees for all high schools including foreign schools free, only the Korean schools
Therefore, students and parents of Korean schools are filing lawsuits with the Japanese government, saying they are unfair discrimination.

Osaka Korean school, which won the first trial, is now facing the second trial.
