Abstract

The quality of education depends on the quality of teachers. Therefore the securing of qualified teachers is the most important factor in determining the success or failure of education. From a historical point of view, however, the teacher training policy in Korea has only focused on quantitative aspects. In particular, the secondary school teacher training system has failed to attract a selected manpower to the teaching profession. Since the middle of 1980's, every attempt has been made to enhance the quality of education. The Presidential Commission on Education Reform announced education reform plans four times. Among them total 16 reform tasks are related to teacher training policy. For the successful accomplishment of education reform, we should overcome the discontinuation of the education reform activities. We should not break with the existtng education reform activities by establishing a new education reform organization whenever a new president appears. (The rest omitted)
