An analysis of the integration of education between North and South Korea during and post-reunification



This study aims to research the framework of integrating education between South and Korea, based on the South Korean government’s National Community Reunification, Step 3. The study begins with a comparison of the strengths and weaknesses of the respective education systems in South and North Korea and considers the case of education integration in Germany. The analysis has been divided into five sections: the school system, curriculum and content, the teacher system, education administration and education culture. This study has been conducted by the Delphi method of having experts and professors` answer questionnaires in two or more rounds. Fifty-one experts participated in the first Delphi survey, 49 in the second and 50 in the final one. The Delphi method shows that education integration between South and North Korea should be phased gradually so that they initially continue to coexist as separate education systems and later seek to create an alternative education system.
