- Relationship is similar to the relationship between parent and child, no matter what the ages of the teacher and the student
- students must collectively stand up and greet/bow to the teacher when he or she enters the classroom
- outside of school interaction is permitted Some Random Cool Facts That Didn't
Fit Into an Overarching Category! Education is competitive: Grades are read aloud to the class so everyone knows each other's grades Shoe Etiquette in the Classrooms: Teachers and students must switch out of their street shoes and into their “school shoes” upon entering the school building Corporal punishment is still in effect: the Korean educational system and childrens’ parents have no issue with physical discipline in school classrooms. It is allowed, although there has been news of the system tightening this up. Students take responsibility for the cleanliness of their school:
- The Korean school system teaches students to be responsible
for the care of their school
- Done by the students early in the morning before the
morning bell rings and after class hours.
- Teachers = 2nd Parents: When couples begin to date, they are to receive permission from their teachers (much like parents) Teachers wash their students' feet at a Seoul high school on May 14, a day before Teachers' Day (May 15th), to thank students for respecting them General Public School Rules: Bibliography "Center on International Education Benchmarking."
