South Korea’s goals for schooling are: creativity, character and collaboration

School systems in Asia that have traditionally shown high levels of success in the testing of numeracy are now turning to broader skills to ensure future economic growth and best equip students to face an uncertain future. 

According to the Pearson 2012 Learning Curve report, South Korean schools are being encouraged to develop ‘creativity, character and collaboration’, with the National Curriculum Information Centre underpinning its curriculum framework with a ‘Vision for the Educated Person’ espousing these values for all students.
