Study on the strategies and directions of the future education in Korea



The purpose of this study is to establish the development plans and policy strategies that the next Korean administration may pursue, given the rapid changes that the Korean society is currently undergoing such as low economic development, high unemployment rates, low birth rates, expansion of older generation, and growing social and economic polarization. To achieve the goal, this study examines the status of Korean education from the four particular perspectives of creativity and collaboration, communication and cooperation, career development and lifelong learning, and social cohesion and educational welfare. With the policy directions and measures driven from those perspectives, this study further presents specific plans, strategies and timetables for policy implementation. The main research questions are then threefold. First, how can we effectively reflect the current situation and projected changes of the Korean society in developing educational visions, policy directions and measures? Second, what is the correct diagnosis of the current educational situation and problems in Korea? Third, what are the actual action plans that the next administration can effectively refer to in planning new educational policies?
