English "Pandemic" in Korea

This guest editorial in the Korea Times is in a similar vein to our earlier post about unqualified teachers looking to work overseas. Sample quote:

It is the Korean parents' crazy obsession with English that drives up the cram school fees; it is their obsession that creates such trouble for the government's education branch to rationally allocate their already-strained budget; and, finally, it is their obsession that leads Korea to be looked-down-upon as a Plan B by those "native English speakers" who miserably fail in their own lives. The parents with such wrong attitudes are to be blamed for the pandemic.
