The Kyoto University of Education (京都教育大学, Kyōto kyōiku daigaku) is a national university in Kyoto, Japan. The school's predecessor was founded in 1876, and it was chartered as a university in 1949.

History[edit]

The Kyoto University of Education was established in 1949 from the merger of Kyōto shihan gakkō and Kyōto seinen shihan gakkō.

Controversy[edit]

In 2009, 6 students of the Kyoto University of Education were arrested for gang-raping a 19-year-old woman in a Kyoto bar. All 6 students were members of sports teams at the university, including the American football team. The university suspended the six students indefinitely at the end of March 2009.[1]
