Purpose: This study analyzes the amendment process of the “Enforcement Decree of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (EDESEA)” and reveals its practical implications with particular attention put on the powers related to the “Autonomous Private High Schools etc.” (APHSE).
Design/methodology/data/approach: The author examines the background of the EDESEA amendment process, while concentrating on the controversial issues surrounding the amendment process.
Findings/Results: The results of this study are summarized as follows. First, though the context in which the EDESEA amendment occurred was the result of the power disparity between the Minister of Education (ME) and the Superintendent of an Office of Education (SOE), the initial action that sparked the conflict was the Seoul SOE’s revocation of certain private high schools’ autonomous designations. Second, at the core of the EDESEA amendment is a change in the ME’s power from one of consultation status to one that grants approval in designating APHSE. (The rest omitted)
