The Ministry of Education has proposed a plan to increase school violence as a second policy question. It is important to decide whether the level of criminal offenses is indicated in cases of small school violence such as service on campus. However, in the case of the first policy questionnaire that discussed how to improve student departments in the first semester of this year, noise remained constant throughout the discussion period, including being targeted by justice. In the world of education, there is the prospect that there will be no great benefit from meditation on the agenda of school violence.
There are two key points from the school violence improvement plan proposed by the Ministry of Education on the 8th. In cases of light sentences (written apologies, prohibitions on approaches, services on campus) of actions taken against students, students may not be registered. Second, in cases of minor violence as above, principals will be empowered to independently solve problems if victims and their parents do not want to hold autonomous committees.
The director of the school's culture of life department in Sangdong said, "In the case of minor violence, it was the ministry's decision to give the principal the right to terminate himself and not write it in the student department," he said. For this purpose, the Ministry of Education will draw results through a discussion process involving experts, teachers, students and parents. In addition, a survey of more than 1,000 residents is common.
This is a system where the opinions of pros and cons of the policy are collected through a process of expert discussion and opinion polls on tense issues. In March, the Ministry of Education announced the introduction of a policy withdrawal system, saying, "In the process of making policy decisions, communication has not been fully achieved, community support and empathy have been lost and the power of policy making has weakened."
The policy consideration agenda was determined by the selection committee of the Ministry of Education's own homepage and issues raised in the Cheong Wa Dae National Petition. The first meditation problem is the improvement plan for the student department which was completed in July.
Until final conclusions are reached, however, justice between participating groups of mediators is widespread. The four education groups, including KTU, said, "Before civil policy groups participate in the deliberation process, the Ministry of Education notifies the government in the form of" guidance ", and there are unusual events. Act".
Discussions about public opinion advocated with a purpose similar to policy meditation ended in failure. There has been much criticism that he spent a year on a budget of several billion won but wasted a year without clear conclusions. In particular, even the movement of good teachers, progressive education groups, "I am disappointed with the conclusions we made over the past year and spent more than 2 billion won on the budget. I cannot decide on important policies and leave the education minister, I have to do it."
Experts point out that careless public consensus brings confusion to education policy. Park Jang-ki, former head of Gwangju Nat 'l Univ. (Education), said, "Since the beginning, the Ministry of Education has decided to leave this matter to the citizens." "This is part of deliberative democracy that should help local residents to participate in local autonomy," said a professor at a private university in Seoul who asked for anonymity. Educational policy is likely to show opinions only from big people. "
