[President Moon Jae-in: What hurts the people most is injustice in education. We will also prepare a 'revision plan for the entrance examination system', including an increase in on-time weight.]

Today (22) President Moon Jae-in announced that he will increase the recruitment-oriented timeline in the city administration speech. The Ministry of Education has been negative about increasing the weight of students on time, saying it will not line up with students, but it seems inevitable that policy change will be inevitable.

The recommendation for this year's 2020 school enrollment is 20%, and it should be increased to more than 30% from 2022 during the public debate last year.

Unfair controversy was heated after the allegation that his former daughter had passed the Korea National University screening screening at the time of his first paper.

The Ministry of Education stated that it is a task to settle the 30% target already stated and there is no further timely expansion.

[Yun Eun-hye / Minister of Social Affairs and Minister of Education: I don't think that adjusting the ratio of punctual and occasional can solve the problem of injustice, privilege, social disparity, etc.]

But when the president mentioned 'expanding time' on his own, the Ministry of Education immediately set out to revise the plan.

Deputy Prime Minister Yu Eun-hye said today that starting in 2022, he expects to make up more than 30% of the time, and said he is discussing the increase in the percentage of some colleges with severe grading.

It is expected to include 13 universities including Seoul National University and Korea University.

On-time expansion may apply from the coming 2022 school year, when no transfer is yet to be confirmed.

The reaction was mixed.

Progressive educational groups such as the KTU criticized the abandonment of ensuring fairness in the screening process and returned to the uniform selection method of the past.

On the other hand, the Korean Federation agreed that the balance between time and time should be balanced.

However, I was concerned that changing the assignment policy too often would confuse students and parents.

Substitution reorganization plans, including on-time expansion, will be announced next month.
