“Education service is also a product…there is no intervention like the state decides the menu”
[서울=뉴시스] National Assembly Photo Correspondent = Yoon Seok-yeol, a presidential candidate for the People’s Power presidential election, gets off the car to attend the ‘People’s Signal Interview’ held at the Joy Studio in Geumcheon-gu, Seoul on the afternoon of the 10th. 2021.09.10.

At the meeting of the Korea Federation of Teachers’ Associations on the afternoon of the same day, former President Yoon said, “Consumers can have various preferences, and schools and teachers, which are suppliers, must also provide various services, and the state should not significantly intervene in it.”
Former President Yoon said, “Education services should be viewed as a product first, but education has a public nature. That is why it is necessary to teach history, to feel patriotism to the country, and to feel the community, so it is necessary to systematically manage it to some extent in terms of the enormous publicity,” he pointed out.
He also said, “After the launch of this government, what would be bad about innovative education in connection with local governments and schools in itself? Who would say that it is holistic education and character education? They should teach axioms, but they do not teach the studies that should be taught properly.”
Former President Yoon recalled, “Even in elementary school and middle and high school, I didn’t listen to my teachers very well, but I still respected my teachers and taught my school life with a willingness to learn. Looking back, I think school was really good.”
He said, “Even though it seems uniform, diversity and autonomy are respected, and the teacher’s status and authority were often hit by the teacher if we were wrong, but the teacher’s status and authority were socially respected (at school) and returned home. If you go in and say that at home, you will be right again, so I wonder if public education is like that.”
