“Lowering literacy”… Expansion of Korean private education market
“A good university should be good at math”… ‘Elementary medical class’ is also popular
Prior to vacation, private education is frequent… should be included in the investigation

Last year, the subject that showed the largest increase in private education expenditures in elementary, middle and high schools was ‘Korean’.

It seems that the Korean private education market has expanded as issues of ‘inability to speak Korean’ and ‘literacy’ have emerged.

It has been confirmed that whenever the government’s education policy or CSAT policy changes, the private education market fluctuates along with it.

Korea’s private education spending has risen steeply and reached an all-time high.

Korean subjects, which increased by 13% from the previous year, led the increase.

It seems that the diagnosis that literacy is getting worse due to Corona 19 and the use of digital devices led students to private education.

Until 2015, the number of high school students receiving private Korean language education was in the single digits, but after passing through the 2019 and 2022 CSATs, which showed the highest level of Korean language difficulty, by 2022, one out of four students will be attending private academies.

The time to enter the private education market in earnest is accelerating.

Among all grades of elementary, middle and high school, the grade with the highest participation rate in private education was elementary school 2, a year earlier than elementary school 3 last year.

It is pointed out that the fact that the survey on infants and toddlers was omitted from the private education statistics is to ignore the reality that English kindergartens, or English academies for infants, are prevalent.

Since the 2000s, the trend toward medical schools has been getting worse year by year, and the perception that if you can’t do math with the integrated liberal arts and science entrance exam, you won’t be able to go to a good university, leading elementary school students to do good in math.

In addition, last year, the Yoon Seok-yeol government decided to retain private high schools and foreign language high schools and sent a signal to diversify high schools, which immediately affected statistics.

Although the average monthly private education cost per person announced this time is 410,000 won, parents respond that the perceived cost is much higher.

It is pointed out that vacations, when prior private education is frequent, should be included in the survey period, and the ratio of private education expenses to income or the number of private education per capita should be investigated.
