Pros and Cons of Education in Korea
Korea has the 10th largest economy in the world.
All citizens receive the benefit of medical insurance, and
Korea boasts the best public order and security in the world.
Korea is a country of the fastest and highest economic growth,
achieving all these results in only 50 years.
Numerous rich people were born in a very short period of time.
Thus, “education” was interpreted as “an
opportunity to become rich without anything.”
As a result, Samsung, LG, Hyundai Motor, and other global brands were born in Korea.
President Obama of the United States is spreading a project called
“Following Korean Education” throughout the American society.
Obama picked “Korea” as a country that grew the
fastest and the most stably based on education.
However, children who should be playing on the grass are
learning English and Chinese,
and are accessing the Internet to solve math problems.
In other words, Korean education did
actually bring a fast and highly-efficient economic growth,
but is not as ideal as what Obama thinks.
