Gwangjus 9 mega-institutes decide to close, will small and medium institutes be affected

 

Some mega-institutes or hakwons(학원) decided to close in participation of preventing the COVID19 spread.

 

According to the Gwangju DongBu(동부) District Office of Education on Mar. 9th, there were 9 mega-hakwons(학원) that decided to close. These include 2 institutes each of DaeSung(대성) and ETOOS(이투스) Hakwons(학원), 1 each of Gwangju Ildeung(일등), Gwangju SkyEdu(스카이에듀) Hakwons(학원) and 3 institutes of KAIST(카이스트) Hakwon(학원).

 

The Office reported that the institutes came to an agreement to prioritize the health and safety of students first despite the expected difficulties in management.

 

The education authorities were recommending all institutes across the regions to close temporarily. This was due to criticism that the quarantine measures taken with school opening postponement are in vain with the institutes still operating.

 

However, with the fixed rate of expenditures that the institutes faced with, such as labor costs and rental fees, hakwons(학원) were still operating.

 

Of some 4,700 hakwons(학원), academies and cram schools, less than 20% have closed so far.
