The article analyses the historical events, mainly the twentieth century, which influenced the current changes in school education in the Republic of Korea. It is shown how, despite the difficult situation that existed on the Korean Peninsula until the end of World War II, the South Koreans managed to overcome all the negative influences of the colonizers and develop a clear trajectory of reforming the education system. It has also been demonstrated that education in South Korea has been identified as a priority factor in the country’s successful state development and security in general. At the moment, our state is looking for quality ways to reform education. Sharp discussions “for” and “against” on various issues in the country is actual nowadays. In this regard, we are very interested in the experience of the Republic of Korea, which, we hope, will help us to make a successful leap in the development of Ukraine in all directions. It is clear that blindly following someone’s path is not a guarantee that we will achieve the expected results. In fact, the experience of the East Asian country, which professes other values in many socio-cultural aspects, cannot be one hundred percent implemented on the basis of Ukraine. At the same time, the clear approach of the Republic of Korea to the values of general civilization is worth doing as South Korea once did. The point is that Koreans regarded school education as an important factor in national security and the country’s successful development and acted accordingly. In our opinion, only such a position will allow Ukraine to make qualitative changes in society
