Abstract

Korea’s vocational education, more than any other educational field, changed dramatically along with the national economic development, and continues to change today. From the 1960s to 1980s, during Korea’s industrialization period, vocational education made significant contributions in terms of supplying industrial manpower. Vocational education graduates increased continuously from 47,000 in 1965 to 201,000 in 1980, and to 274,000 in 1990, and their employment share increased from 35.5% to 51.1% and to 76.6%, respectively. In terms of employment among the new graduates, the share of vocational education graduates steadily increased each year, from 24.4% in 1965 to 46.6% in 1975 and to over 50% during the 1980s. During the industrialization period, vocational high schools supplied more labor force than any other educational institution. (The rest omitted)
