Scope and content

Three vocational training centers that will improve technical education in the Korean province of Cholla-namdo we're officially opened at a joint ceremony held at Kwangju Technical High School today (4 March 1958). The schools, Kwangju and Mokpe Technical High Schools and Yosu Fishery School, are part of an overall $11,500,000 educational programme under which the United Nations Korean Reconstruction Agency (UNKRA) has built over 4700 classrooms, re- equipped laboratories and libraries, imported teaching aids, constructed a merchant marine academy, established two training institutes, as well as setting up seven vocational training centers in the main cities of the country. Here, at the Kwangju Technical High School where one of the centers was opened, students are shown working on a newly-built forge. The school, with 1,750 students, lays emphasis on electrical and mechanical engineering and textile spinning processes to fit in with the main industries of the Kwangju area. UNKRA allocated $268,000 to supply construction materials for ten classrooms, a machine shop and an electrical laboratory.
