Abstract

South Korea developed national economy to escape poverty and education was the most significant tool for being rich individually and nationally. Actually, for past decades, Korea education policy focused on public education to provide equal educational opportunity for all and was evaluated to be successfully. However, increasing income of people in Korea society, people wanted to be richer. These desire brought serious competitive social atmosphere and even, Korea education policy was to face a particular set of problems caused by an intensified gap between the rich and the poor in their level of education due to excessive investment in private education. As the result, in these days Korea education policy was to have the problem that reconstructs public education and decrease private education. To contemplate the problem of Korea education policy, this paper identifies the current characteristics of private education that arguably are the root causes of education problems in Korea; understands the historical development of this problem by tracing the development and evolution of Korea’s education policy; and analyses the structural problem of education policy that has caused the expansion of private education.
