Abstract

Korean society, once characterized by a high degree of intergenerational social mobility, faces increasing pessimism over the significance of one’s efforts in moving up the social ladder. Rising skepticism is being cast on the role of education as a pathway to social ascent, given how intergenerational transfer of social status is increasing and the education gap between social classes is widening. Accordingly, the time has come to intervene in the early stages of personal development to prevent wasting talent; to take aggressive measures against inequality; to pursue educational reforms in order to help the younger generations develop competencies and explore diverse paths to success; and to make policy efforts to prevent the social exclusion of the underprivileged.
