About the OECD Thematic Review of ECEC and Korea's participation:
Invited by the participating countries, OECD expert teams evaluate each country's policy, programs and provision for children from birth to compulsory school age. Prior to the review, participating countries publish a background report describing current policy and practice, and outline the challenges that ECEC policy faces in the coming years. After the expert review, the OECD publishes a country note that notes the issues observed, and suggests solutions and recommendations for the consideration of the competent authorities.
Korea was the fifteenth country to be visited in the overall Review. Prior to the visit, a background report on ECEC policy in Korea was prepared by Korean Educational Development Institute. After analysis of the background report, a review team consisting of an OECD Secretariat member and four experts with diverse analytic and policy backgrounds visited Korea between May 18-28, 2003. The Korea country note was published in June 2004.
