Education and Family in Conflict
Lee, Jihye
Journal of Studies in International Education, v15 n4 p395-401 Sep 2011
In recent years, the demands of high-quality education have become a source of problems in South Korea, forming a new type of separated family. When the parents send their children to foreign countries for advanced education, the fathers, the wives, and children are separated for a significantly long period of time. Usually, the fathers, called "Seagull Dads" (Kim, 2008), are in charge of financial support and considered suffering the most. As a result, the opportunity of the advance education for children transforms into a crisis for the entire family. (Contains 3 tables.)
