Education in Japan

The educational system in Sweden is more or less always under review and especially this year since there is an election year.

So I thought about some question about the School system in Japan.

* What year do you start school?
* Is Highschool mandatory and how old are you usually when it ends?
* Is english mandatory and what does the kids usually think about it?
* How does the school system adapt after kids with special needs?
* How many goes to university after highschool?
* There have been a few articles even here on the forum about strict requirements from parents about their childrens grades, how's the view on that in Japan and is the attitude about to change?
