Abstract

One of the most important and urgent educational policies after the establishment of the Korean government was implementation of compulsory elementary education stipulated in the Constitution and Education Act. Although the Korean government intended to implement a 6-year compulsory education system as stated in the supplementary provision of Article 16 of the Constitution starting June 1, 1950, the measure was foiled due to the outbreak of the Korean War, which erupted only 24 days after that day. With the launch of an educational autonomy system in June 1952, however, the Korean government resumed its plan to enforce compulsory education. Since then, the Ministry of Education established a 6-year Plan for Compulsory Elementary Education. Measures were actively promoted with an aim to achieve 100 percent student enrollment of school-age children.
There had been many trials and errors in the process of legalization and implementation of compulsory elementary education system which aimed at 100 percent enrollment and free education.(The rest omitted)
