Tokyo Metropolitan Government Board of Education

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government Board of Education (東京都教育委員会 Tōkyō-to Kyōiku Iinkai) is the board of education in Tokyo, Japan. The board directly manages all of the public high schools in all 23 special wards, the Western Tokyo, and all islands under Tokyo's jurisdiction.

In 2019 policies requiring students who do not naturally have black hair to dye it as such were struck down.[1] In 2017, as stated by survey results, 57% of the state-operated schools in the metropolis required students who did not have hair naturally colored black to submit documents proving so.[2] The Japanese Communist Party criticized measures requiring parents to prove hair color.[3]
