Lee Vows to Strengthen English Education



Presidential nominee Lee Myung-bak of the Grand National Party (GNP) pledged
Tuesday to strengthen public education so that high school graduates can
communicate freely in English with foreigners.

His visions for strong public education contained both carrot and stick
measures for schools as well as teachers.

Lee, 65, said that if he is elected president he will implement measures to
cut household spending on private education by half of the current level
through strengthening English education at public schools.
