"The Republic of Korea has begun the new semester of 2020 for the first time in the history of education for over 70 years," said Eun-hye Yoo, Minister of Social Affairs and Minister of Education on the 9th.

In the morning of the 3rd grade online opening ceremony held at Goshak High School in Suwon, Gyeonggi-do this morning, Yoo said, "I couldn't extend the suspension period during the Corona 19 crisis and chose to start online to reduce the learning gap among students."

"Education online will be an opportunity for education to go into the future," he said. "There may be trial and error as it is the first way, but this process and experience will also be our assets and experiences."

Next, he explained, "The Ministry of Education will respond quickly to problems, inconveniences, and difficulties that arise during the online school year."

In addition, "I am very proud of the students who are taking on new challenges, and I sincerely appreciate the parents who believe in the school and actively support them." I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the teachers who strive with passion and dedication in the field. " Encouraged.

The online opening ceremony was held in the order of national rites, greetings from the principal, congratulatory speech by the Minister of Education, and introduction of class teachers.

About 220 students in the 3rd grade accessed the school Google account and participated in the opening ceremony.

After the congratulatory remarks, Deputy Prime Minister Yoo had a video-answer with students.

During this process, the screen image of a student was not connected for about 1 minute, so the conversation was temporarily stopped.

Students suggested to the U.S. Prime Minister that the need for smart devices to be supported and the stability of the remote class access should be secured in order to smoothly conduct remote classes, and Mr. Yu said, "I will do my best to support the equipment needed for online and especially interactive classes through the school. Replied.

The online class access problem is "the most worrying part in the future," and if the connection is lost or suddenly exceeds the capacity, the number of users may become unusable, so consult with related organizations to minimize incompleteness. The capacity has also been expanded. "
