Abstract

In this paper, we address such two contrasting aspects of Korean education mentioned above: 'state-of-art' profile in enrollments and test scores, and sub-standard, quite deplorable state of education epitomized by the longstanding 'exam-hell' and 'Gua-Woi'. Our major objectives are threefold: 1) to deliver a balanced and integrated picture about the real, current state of Korea`s education; 2) to clarify the nature and ultimate sources
of aforementioned Korean educational ills, and 3) to suggest what policy measures are needed to get over those formidable problems.
