Abstract
A serious predicament of the Korean education system is its inability to provide

individual students with a structured and systematic opportunity to identify and develop

their special abilities. Plagued with curriculum and assessment policies which force

students to cram simple facts by rote, the education system has rather impaired the

realization of individuality, uniqueness, and creativity. For instance, based on the

overwhelming emphasis on linguistic and logical-mathematical abilities, the education

system often abandons students with other talents as “lost causes” and chokes other

performance abilities from flourishing.

Fortunately, “the 7th Curriculum Development” offers hope that such an educational

reality could be amended in the near future. Aiming to improve the quality of

education, it pursues to develop a more individualized and diverse curriculum for

Korean schools.
