日本には日本の風土に合った教育も重要だ。

I read from jisho.org that the definition of 風土 are: natural features; topography; climate; spiritual features.

While dictionary.goo.ne.jp described it as: 1 その土地の気候・地味・地勢などのありさま。2 人間の文化の形成などに影響を及ぼす精神的な環境。「政治的風土」「宗教的風土」

I wonder what the meaning of 日本の風土 is when it was related to an education. Culture? Spirit?

I'd translate it "cultural climate".

Personally, I don't think it's a very well-defined word, as I often see it used naively i.e. confuses geographical, biological, inherent conditions with sociological, acquired conditions when explaining a social phenomenon. I don't know whether yours is the case or not.
