Jeollanamdo to provide free high school education from this fall

 

The Jeollanamdo Provincial Office of Education is set to provide free education to all high school students in its jurisdiction from this fall semester.

 

The Office launched its free education program for high school freshmen earlier this year and the program will expand to cover sophomores and seniors next month.

 

All high school students in Jeonnam will have their tuition and school management support covered by the local education office.

 

The Provincial Education Offices high school free education program is 2 years faster than the national governments plan to do so by 2021.

 

The Education Office secured some 12.1 billion in budget to enforce the plan.


The Office will also cover meal costs for children attending private preschools in Jeonnam from September.

 

A total of 2,822 5-year-olds attending 93 private kindergartens in its jurisdiction will receive the benefit at 2,200 won per meal.

 

Furthermore, the edu taxi program that provides transportation services for elementary and middle school students living in isolated areas will be expanded from September.

 

The program launched in 7 cities and counties in May and it will cover 21 cities and counties around the province, except for Mokpo.

 

A total of 709 students attending 131 different schools will receive the benefit.
