Abstract:

The paper engages scholarly conversations concerning international English education, cosmopolitanism, economic development, and school choice. It explores one way S. Korea uses education to promote economic growth and world prominence: the establishment of international schools, and specifically the twelve new international schools set to open on Jeju Island by 2013 (Hyun-cheol, 2009). In general, the S. Korean government encourages the growth of international schools as a way to attract foreign investors to S. Korea (Han, 2009). The new schools on Jeju Island are part of a larger project called Jeju English Education City. S. Korea wants the island to be the place to come for English education (Hyun-cheol, 2009). In light of these projects, in 2008 and 2009, S. Korea's Ministry of Education changed their policies regulating who can establish and who can attend international schools (Shin-who, 2009a, 2009b). Through an analysis of international schools' marketing materials and S. Korean newspaper articles, the paper discusses the implications of these policy changes and how the development of international schools is indicative of S. Korea's cosmopolitan desires.
