Systems Analysis for Educational Change: The Republic of Korea. Final Report.
Morgan, Robert M., Ed.; Chadwick, Clifton B., Ed.
This report describes the activities and recommendations of a study team that attempted to reform the Korean educational system to increase its efficiency and make it more responsive to the nation's needs. Using a systems approach, the study team collected historical, cultural, and educational data, including demographic reports, economic forecasts, manpower needs projections, educational fiscal data, current and long-range educational plans, and information on educational objectives and attainment. These data were analyzed in terms of future manpower needs and educational output, estimated cost benefits, and strategies for appropriate introduction of innovation and technology into the educational system. Alternative approaches for relating resources to educational objectives were examined. Based on this analysis, the study team recommended a number of major changes intended to provide a better, more relevant education for Korean young people, at a lower unit cost than the present Korean educational system.
