It has been reported that North Korea is sending some of the university students from the College of Education to elementary and senior middle schools (our middle and high schools) as practice teachers to gain professional experience in the field.

On the 25th, a Daily NK source in South Pyongan Province said, “At the end of April, practice teachers composed of students from the College of Education were dispatched to teach morning classes, and they went out as adjunct teachers to the total mobilization of rural support, which is currently an extracurricular activity, in Pojeon with elementary and senior middle school children. We are conducting field training together,” he said.

Sources say that this educational practice program, which dispatches students from the College of Education to the school site, was suspended for the past three years due to emergency prevention against the new coronavirus infection (Corona 19), but resumed this year.

According to the authorities’ judgment that the internal Corona 19 situation is stable, it seems that the curriculum is being implemented again so that students from the College of Education, who are prospective teachers, can gain professional experience in the field.

It is explained that teacher practice, which enables students of the College of Education to understand basic school education and overall extracurricular activities and to practice the theory of the national education code, is one of North Korea’s teacher training courses and is conducted in accordance with the operating guidelines of the Cabinet Education Committee. .

According to the source, the Board of Education pointed out that it was important that teacher practice using the combat period of total mobilization for rural support was resumed after three years, and students from the College of Education who went out as practice teachers communicated with students in the classroom and in the field, advocating the ‘our nation first principle’. He urged the government to fulfill its role with an emphasis on enhancing patriotism.

In addition, the Education Committee emphasized to the students of the College of Education that elementary and senior middle school students should have professionalism and character to the extent that they cannot feel the difference between the practical teacher and the current homeroom teacher.

In addition, the Board of Education ordered students from the College of Education to submit individual daily practice reports, and each university evaluated this practice report and reflected it in the grades of individual students.

In addition, it is known that the Board of Education instructed schools and incumbent teachers to help teachers in practice and to nurture practical talents equipped with practical qualifications and abilities.

Meanwhile, a source said, “Dispatch of teachers for practical training began at the end of last month and is expected to last for two months.”
