Success and Education in South Korea.
Sorensen, Clark W.
Comparative Education Review, v38 n1 p10-35 Feb 1994
South Korean students scored better than students from 18 other countries on math and science achievement tests. In South Korea, economic social status for oneself and one's family are directly related to educational level. This, plus intense pressure from parents and authoritarian teachers, motivates students to score well on competitive national exams for high school and college admission. (KS)
