Moving on Up: The role of the Hagwon on the Korean ladder to success

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

When international teachers come to teach in Korea, they are often baffled by their students' extensive use of and dependence on hagwons. This workshop session will address this long-standing aspect of Korean culture by providing a historical background as well as the educational, economic and social drivers that keep the hagwon inextricably intertwined in a modern Korean education
