Role of Private Schools in Korea’s Educational Development
Preface
The study of Korea’s economic and social transformation offers a unique opportunity to better understand the factors that drive development. Within one generation, Korea has transformed itself from a poor agrarian society to a modern industrial nation, a feat never seen before. What makes Korea’s experience so unique is that its rapid economic development was relatively broad-based, meaning that the fruits of Korea’s rapid growth were shared by many. The challenge of course is unlocking the secrets behind Korea’s rapid and broad-based development, which can offer invaluable insights and lessons and knowledge that can be shared with the rest of the international community. Recognizing this, the Korean Ministry of Strategy and Finance (MOSF) and the Korea Development Institute

Abstract

Challenges of developing countries such as increased social and economic demand for good quality secondary and higher education require a substantial amount of financial investment, which the government alone cannot bear. As a strategy for expanding access to secondary and higher education and providing quality education, the government can utilize private sector capacity. By establishing and managing schools, the private sector can help expand the national educational system and provide quality education to people in various ways.
Private schools in Korea have made a tremendous contribution in the expansion of both secondary and higher education. What were the government policies and strategies for using the private sector capacity to expand educational opportunities in secondary and higher education in Korea? Have private schools performed well in guaranteeing diversities in educational values, in improving education quality, or in developing innovative educational methods?(The rest omitted)

User Note

Private sector is a useful resource in terms of finance and professional expertise. The government needs to utilize private sector’s capacity to overcome the budget constraints and management rigidity. This KSP module discusses the potential of private schools for a country’s educational development, and analyzes specific government policies that Korea adopted to use private sector capacity for educational expansion and private schools’ performance in terms of the diversity in educational values and education quality. Key factors pointed in the module will be a good reference to the governments of the developing countries when they plan to introduce or expand private schools in their national education system.
