18 USFK Schools Planned in Pyeongtaek

April 29, 2009

Gyeonggi Province Government and the U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) are moving to build 18 primary and secondary schools by 2020 in Pyeongtaek, where a new consolidated U.S. base will be built. 

Gyeonggi has been asked by the USFK to invest an unspecified amount of money into the establishment of the schools. In turn, the USFK will permit the admission of Korean students. 

Last February, USFK Commander Gen. Walter Sharp proposed that the new army schools in the province make up their enrollment targets with up to 15- 20 percent of Korean students during a meeting with lawmakers of the National Assembly Defense Committee. The proposal has already been reported to Cheong Wa Dae and the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology.
