The University Reform in Korea: A Deregulation To Be Deregulated?
Chung, Bong Gun
This paper explores the current situation of universities in Korea in an era of reform. University reform was initiated by the government in the 1980s and brought to the universities in the 1990s. In the interval, there have been many social, economic, and political changes in Korean society. The current approach to university reform in Korea needs to be reviewed in terms of its ideology, methods, and agencies to reflect the fundamental changes in its contingencies. There appears to be a "paradigmatic gap" between the government and the universities. Laws regulating higher education in Korea should be rewritten, and the notion that accountability to society is the rationale for government control of the universities should be reinterpreted. Education reform is a never-ending story, and it may be that a deregulation of the current mode of deregulation is likely to be the theme for reform in the 21st century. (Contains 16 references.)
