Faculty of Education in Mie University began to send visit group of professors and students to The University of Auckland in New Zealand since 2011, so this year（2012）is the second year. I myself joined the visit group for the first time this year and visited one primary school, one intermediate school and one college（=upper secondary school）in and near Auckland City during Sept. 17th and 19th. Those school are in the similar democratic society like Japan, but there are many different characteristics from Japanese primary and secondary schools. So I will introduce some of the different characteristics in some New Zea lander schools in this report.
