Education is highly valued in Korea, yet many Koreans are discontent with the local educational system. A large number of Korean students are seeking an education abroad and are interested in a broad range of programs, including: middle/high school, language programs, 2-year degrees, bachelor's and graduate programs. Recently, the Korean government began an initiative to educate the population on the English language and plans to hire 23,000 "Teaching English in English" (TEE) teachers between 2009 and 2013 and begin introducing English language classes in model schools in rural areas. This reform has broadened the market as students are eager to study in the U.S. to improve their language skills and prepare themselves for business in a global world.
