The Illusion of “Free” Education in North Korea

first_img North Korea tries to accelerate building of walls and fences along border with China RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR SHARE By Daily NK – 2009.07.20 6:20pm In May, 1990, Kim Jong Il was appointed First Vice-Chairman of the National Defense Commission, and in December of the following year became the supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army. Through this process, Kim grasped supreme command of the Military and the Workers’ Party, and secured the foundations of his power. At that time, Kim Il Sung was the titular head of state and National Defense Commission Chairman, but had already become a symbolic figure. The leadership was falling gently into Kim Jong Il’s hands. While Kim was moving to secure his power, the economy was moving into a phase of rapid deterioration. As the Warsaw Pact was dismantled in 1991 following the collapse of the Eastern European communist bloc, North Korea’s international aid and trade took a hammering. These national financial crises seriously affected education. ▲ The nominally gratis education systemIn 1977, North Korea launched an 11-year compulsory education system, and poured flattery on itself as an “education state.”Kim Il Sung called children national treasures and made frequent onsite inspections at educational facilities. Every New Year’s Day he watched a special children’s performance. However, Kim Jong Il did not have nearly as much interest in education as his father. When he was a candidate to succeed, he accompanied his father to inspections at schools, but after Kim Il Sung’s death he stopped doing so. Instead, Kim Jong Il consider students just supplementary workers for farm-support activities in spring and fall, and as targets for exploitation. This is all about the campaign, “Do good things.” The most popular “good things” are raising rabbits and providing the People’s Army with aid. If students don’t have rabbits, the schools take their money instead. People in South Korea tend to think that the time when North Korea’s free education system started collapsing was after the famine, but in reality it was the 1990s. As state investment in education was reduced, schools began operating autonomously, depending on their students in many ways. The first example of the need to “do good things” was providing coal in the early 1990s. During the Kim Il Sung period, coal had been provided for schools first, before other facilities, but since his death, education facilities have been largely excluded from provision. It is impossible for schools to solve their heating problems without state support during the winter, but they do their best by forcing students to give firewood, coal or money. Most parents would prefer to educate their kids by paying a certain fee, rather than providing such things in the name of doing “a good thing.” The list of educational hardships is almost endless. Further examples include;– Nowadays, schools have problems providing students with text books, which were free in the past, so students have to use their seniors’ text books. Excluding Pyongyang, less than 50% of students get new, free text books every year. – Every time desks, chairs, school roofs, fences and others facilities are repaired, students have to pay for it. – In universities and senior schools, students have to give a certain degree of bribe like firewood, gasoline, alcohol, or money in order to take exams and get credits, too.

Sarri on Liverpool, rating West Ham, Pedro and Rudiger injuries, Hazard’s display and resting players

first_imgOn whether Eden Hazard performed in the way Sarri wanted“Not in the first half, but better in the second. But today it was very difficult. They were cutting out every kind of pass to Giroud.“Hazard did very well in the last 25 minutes but more on the right than the left. It was very difficult for the striker and the two wingers.” [/media-credit] Chelsea had won all their games under Maurizio Sarri Chelsea hope to have Pedro and Rudiger available this week On whether his players were affected by their Europa League trip“I don’t know. I don’t think so in this period of the season, after only seven matches.“It’s very difficult to play in the Europa League but I think it’s more difficult not now (it’s more difficult later in the season).“I only said I don’t know why in England it is not possible, when you play a match away in the Europa League, to ask for a match in the Premier League on a Monday night, because in Italy that’s normal.“But, if here I have to play 64 hours after a European match, it’s OK. It’s not a big problem I think in this period of the season, but maybe in April.”On an injury picked up by Toni Rudiger“I don’t know. I want to speak with the doctor but I think it’s nothing serious. I think maybe three or four days, nothing more.”On Pedro, who missed out with a shoulder injury“Pedro for us is very important because he is the best player we have with the movement without the ball. So in this moment of the season he is very important. We are trying to have him at the end of the week, but I don’t know.” Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook [/media-credit] West Ham managed to keep Chelsea at bay Chelsea beat Liverpool in the semi-final of the League Cup in 2015center_img On how close Chelsea are to playing the football he wants“We need to move the ball quicker I think. We need more movement without the ball.“We are improving in the defensive phase. In the last two or three matches we defended very well but we have to improve, especially in this kind of match.”On facing Liverpool in the Carabao Cup“We have to play against a team who are very, very good. Against a team that have worked with the same coach for three or four years and they are a step forward of us at this moment.“We have started to work all together 35 or 40 days ago – less 10 for the international breaks – so for us I think for us it is a bit early.“We have to work, have to improve, and then I think maybe in one year we will be at the same level as Liverpool.” [/media-credit] It was a frustrating day for Hazard On whether it will be better facing Liverpool, who are more open“I don’t think so. It will be really a very difficult match. Maybe a spectacular match but for us a very difficult match.”On whether he will make changes“I want to see a picture of the situation during the training session. Now, really I don’t know.“Maybe I will have to change 11 players, maybe only five, but in this moment I don’t know.” See also:Sarri on Hazard’s fitness, the captaincy, Barkley’s importance and the futures of Chelsea duoSarri on Man Utd tactics, Mourinho, injury news and the futures of Chelsea trioSarri on Loftus-Cheek, Fabregas’ role, the captaincy and whether Hudson-Odoi might play Chelsea’s 100% record under Maurzio Sarri ended as they drew 0-0 with West Ham on Sunday afternoon.

I don’t know why they lost their first four matches in the Premier League.AdChoices广告“They are really a very good team. Maybe now they have confidence that they won away against Everton.“Maybe we could have done better in the last 25 minutes of the first half. Then I think we have played well in the second half generally but very well in the last 25 minutes.“It’s impossible to win every match. One point is OK for today.”last_img read more

The football league pedasn is over. No ballot box and…

After finding a quarantine for the Opava club at Unfortunately, it was not possible to complete the current season so that we could meet the deadline, which the clubs themselves set as the latest date for the day of completion, said the league of Duan Svoboda.There is no official table, but no one will take Slavia’s twentieth anniversary title. The participants of the European Cups took the title from the group, which completely finished.From the point of view of d, there was no other choice and despite the number of mistakes, only six of the group’s efforts were made to save them, we cannot recognize the final ranking, said Svoboda.We were prepared for this situation and we can determine the most basic parameters. The participants are the days of the group’s competition for the title and the championship title falls to Slavia, who is to go to congratulate you one way, he emphasized.In addition to the sophistication title, individual statistics are also hidden in history. The best shooters are the official slogan Petar Musa and sparan Libor Kozk with trncti gly. In the same way, the results are included in historical tables and statistics.Opava, Karvin and Pbram issued a round at the pedestrian end, because one of these teams was descended and two would have to go to the bar against the whole of the second league.Since the clubs passed the week due to lack of termals, they voted to cancel the bar, only the worst of the dark would be in the second league.Only due to incompleteness, no one descended, Pardubice advanced to the first league, including the second league. And in order not to play the competition with the odd sweat of the participants, Zbrojovka Brno, a kind of dark kind of league, added the number to eighteen.For five seasons we will play in a sweat of eighteen teams in the first league and thirteen teams in the second highest competition. Darkness with the fact that the five seasons will take place without superstructures. This is a transitional situation, it is our goal to return to the equal model of the estates in both leagues in a year, Svoboda noted.For the sake of this, the crack of Dukla remained, which, as the third type of league, had a bar and, after its cancellation, had to advance among the elite together with Pardubice and Brno. But the very end spoiled the joy.The rescue group did not finish due to the fact that the hygienic station of the Moravian-Silesian Region sent a must of Opava to the quarantine cell, and only one case of coronavirus appeared in the dark.For the twist of two rounds, which were postponed for three weeks due to the same fall in Karviná, they are not thermal.
