About this book

This book theorizes shadow education as a new component of curriculum, expanding the concept of curriculum to include this type of learning. Curriculum scholars and theorists have largely disregarded shadow education as a valid topic of scholarly attention despite its massive growth worldwide. But shadow education has become a global phenomenon with ever-increasing numbers of student participants; it complements school-based curricula, in many cases going beyond. Thus, Jung and Kim argue that shadow education requires rigorous analysis by curriculum studies scholars. This volume analyzes the state and importance of shadow education in countries around the world: its representative forms and industries (private tutoring institutes, home-visit private tutoring, Internet-based private tutoring, subscribed learning programs, after-school programs), its characteristic forms in terms of curriculum, and its roles in student learning. It also explores various features of shadow education based on an eight-year ethnographic study in South Korea.

Reviews

“For readers who are unfamiliar with the concept of curriculum scholarship, the authors provide a whirlwind overview of many of the touchpoints over the years, ranging from scholarly examinations … . They note clearly the complexity of the new learning space and even what it means to be academically successful. In many respects, these authors have provided a scholarly starting point for much deeper discussions and examinations of the very future of school.” (Michael McVey, International Review of Education, Vol. 65, 2019)
