- International education in Korea is now in its infancy. It is only in the late 1980s that specialists in education perceived
the emergent national need for international education at schools. How to educate young students who can adapt to a rapidly internationalizing society draws attention from the contemporary specialists in education, especially in Social Studies.
A variety of definitions of international education in other countries implies that we Koreans need to develop our own perspective and contents suited to our new role in the world. However, development of our own perspective and contents involves the difficult and painful job of value judgement.
