Korea to support multicultural children
Lee Woo-young, The Korea Herald (12 March 2012)

“The Education Ministry announced Monday that it would establish more preparatory schools to help children from multicultural families learn the Korean language and culture before they enter regular public school,” according to the article.  Prep schools currently offer basic language and culture courses before entering the public school system.  The Education Ministry will also ensure that Korean as a Second Language is offered in public schools. “As a part of this effort, the ministry plans to increase dual-language instructors tenfold from 120 this year to 1,200 in 2015 so that there will be at least one such teacher assigned to every 50 students.”
