Abstract

Korea has undergone a series of educational reforms, but the most comprehensive education reform was started in 1993. With the intention of building an Ed-utopia (the promotion of an ‘Education Welfare State’), where educational opportunities would be available to every citizen at his or her convenience to fully realize individual potential, 120 tasks based on four reform proposals were adopted to raise creative and talented citizens who would live in a highly competitive knowledge-based global village (Moon, 1997).
