Abstract

The purpose of this article is to overview the current status of both elementary school teacher education and secondary mathematics teacher education in Korea. The preservice training systems for elementary school teachers and secondary school teachers are first explained. It is important to note that Korean teacher preparation systems have not been formally changed since the 1950s when the government accredited teacher preparation programs for the first time.. Second, an analysis of the curricula of preservice training institutions reveals that knowledge subject matter is being given more emphasis today. Third, the selection and employment of teachers is discussed. Finally, the reasons why the teaching profession is becoming particularly attractive to young people today are described.
