ABSTRACT

The first Lifelong Education Long-term Promotion Plan (2003 ~ 2007) was established in Korea in 2002. Recently, the fourth plan (2018 ~ 2022) has been announced, and various policies are being formulated to promote lifelong learning for all citizens. In order to examine the current status of national lifelong education, we reviewed the policy projects of 18 central departments in 2018, and looked into the central budget and major promotion departments’ budgets, among other policy budgets, for the six areas specified in the Lifelong Education Act. According to our analysis, in 2018, a budget of 7.1 trillion KRW—2.03% of the total departmental budget—was organized for the project of vitalizing lifelong education. In addition, of projects targeting specific groups, the highest budgets were earmarked for low-income groups. Based on this expenditure plan, the future tasks of the lifelong education policy industry are laid out.
