South Korea's Education Exodus

The Life and Times of Early Study Abroad

South Korea's Education Exodus analyzes Early Study Abroad in relation to the neoliberalization of South Korean education and labor. With chapters based on demographic and survey data, discourse analysis, and ethnography in destinations such as Canada, New Zealand, Singapore, and the United States, the book considers the complex motivations that spur families of pre-college youth to embark on often arduous and expensive journeys. In addition to examining various forms and locations of study abroad, South Korea's Education Exodus discusses how students and families manage living and studying abroad in relation to global citizenship, language ideologies, social class, and race.

Reviews

"South Korea's Education Exodus provides readers with rich narratives centering on Early Study Abroad (ESA) as a lens through which one can understand not only the inner workings of ESA but its intimate connections with broader structural factors. . . . [A] useful resource in undergraduate courses on modern and contemporary Korea, international education, inter-Asia cultural studies, multiculturalism, and globalization."—Hyaeweol Choi, Journal of Asian Studies
