The DPRK took a large number of important measures for promoting the development of education in the new century of the Juche era.

The 12th Supreme People’s Assembly of the DPRK promulgated the law on enforcing the universal 12-year compulsory education at its Sixth Session in September 2012.

The promulgation of the law was a great event proclaiming to the whole world that the DPRK would work towards an educational power.

The Workers’ Party of Korea set the year 2017 marking the 40th anniversary of the publication of work “Theses on Socialist Education” by President Kim Il Sung and the year 2018 as the years of science and education and took steps to push ahead with the work for improving educational conditions and environment.

The 13th national conference of educational workers served as a turning point in further perfecting the socialist educational system and bringing about a radical improvement in the educational work of the country.

In the historic work he sent to the participants in the 13th national conference of educational workers, the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un put forward the slogan “Let us make ours a country of education and a talent power by bringing about a radical improvement in education in the new century!” and noted that the main link in radically improving education in the new century is to decisively boost general secondary education, before indicating the ways and tasks for educational development.

In some years after the promulgation of the law on enforcing the universal 12-year compulsory education, more than 1 500 schools were built or enlarged and many classrooms turned into multifunctional ones across the country.

Thanks to the enthusiastic efforts of officials and teachers in the education sector, the universal 12-year compulsory education began to be enforced in full measure in the new school year starting in April 2017.

The law on genius education was adopted at the 24th plenary session of the 14th Supreme People’s Assembly of the DPRK in February 2023 and the laws on vocational education and general education at a session of the Permanent Commission of the Standing Committee of the DPRK SPA in May that year. All the laws adopted for educational development in the new century of the Juche era encouraged educational workers and teachers across the country to be aware of their duties once again.

The year 2023 was a meaningful year specially etched in the history of Juche-oriented education.

Important steps were taken that year to alter the educational structure of the country so as to offer advanced education and to decisively improve and strengthen education according to the firm decision and will of the WPK to develop education to the world’s level.

The law on supporting education was adopted on December 21 2023 as part of the proactive measures taken by the WPK to put the education of the country on the world’s level at an earliest date by motivating everyone to regard the support of education as their sacred civic duty and turn out in that.

Those crucial measures adopted for educational development at major meetings for deciding Party and state policies in the new century of the Juche era provided important guidelines to be followed by the education sector of the DPRK and a sure guarantee for stepping up the efforts for bringing about a radical improvement in education.
