Demand Analysis of Public Education: A Quest for New Public Education System for Next Generation
Abstract Over the last three decades, Korean society has been facing a wide range of problems of public education that has led to rising demand for supplementary private education and, in extreme cases, sending children overseas to meet the educational needs. Only by understanding the change in individual preferences for mandatory public education and the educational needs from social perspectives, directions for redesigning the supply side of equation would become more apparent. This paper attempts to demonstrate the changing preferences of parents with fewer numbers of children, coupled with a social move from industrial age to information age and even to conceptual age, would require drastically different mode of providing public education. To ensure a successful transformation of public education system, strategies must be built around the mechanisms of involving diverse stakeholder interests as well as public campaign programs to mobilize political support and resources for such change.

Abstract

Over the last three decades, Korean society has been facing a wide range of
problems of public education that has led to rising demand for supplementary private
education and, in extreme cases, sending children overseas to meet the educational
needs. Only by understanding the change in individual preferences for mandatory
public education and the educational needs from social perspectives, directions for
redesigning the supply side of equation would become more apparent. This paper
attempts to demonstrate the changing preferences of parents with fewer numbers of
children, coupled with a social move from industrial age to information age and even
to conceptual age, would require drastically different mode of providing public
education. To ensure a successful transformation of public education system,
strategies must be built around the mechanisms of involving diverse stakeholder
interests as well as public campaign programs to mobilize political support and
resources for such change.
