I'm aware of the post hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy, but it's difficult not to see a connection between a news story about misappropriation of funds intended for school library book buying
(http://www.japantoday.com/category/national/view/more-than-20-of-school-library-budget-misappropriated )
and another about Japanese young people recently having trouble reading sub-titles in movies

As for the adequacy of education regarding modern history, or ancient history, for that matter, that's a topic for another time.
