Minimizing Disparities in Access to Educational Opportunities / Reorganizing global infrastructure and seeking the multilateral trust of both corporations and government


SDGs : Group 2 (High quality education, sexual equality, water and hygiene)

Starting from our trip to Laos as a member of FFT, a club that volunteers in Laos (teaching them basic information that they cannot get), reality about education imbalance was very clear. There were about 283 million kids that couldn’t get education. Because of this problem that our world is facing, we decided to come up with 3 solutions.

First is creating an online class platform that can replace basic education that can provide basic elementary education to all ages. It will also provide certificates to those who finished the course.

Second is securing the rights of disadvantaged children. Proposed as ‘Guaranteed learning hours”, the UN and its countries will come up with a certain minimum learning hour specifically required for the students. Children will be provided a chance to learn, and develop their ability by themselves, also letting them escape from child labor or parental abuses.

Third is enlisting the help of corporations. For adequate funding, help of corporations is needed. Corporations that contributed can enhance their reputation of the company as well.

Fourth is to create a global wave of education development. Within the international level, countries will be required to identify the status quo with the advisory committee from the UN. Documentaries and reports will be released to promote the campaign.

Through these solutions, we hope to minimize the disparity in access to educational opportunities.

    Hello, I am Hwayeon Ko and I wrote my essay about poverty eradication (Group 1). I really enjoyed watching your presentation and reading your paper because I share the same opinion with your group that many people often take education for granted or even forget about its importance. I also really liked the fact that your project is based on your own personal experience in your trip to Laos. I believe that your wish to create an online school system to ensure education to many people as possible is just an awesome idea, especially in the current situation, because your project could make education more accessible and ameliorate certain barriers of online classes. You have mentioned that school is a ‘miniature society’, which I agree with, because children at school interact with different people and develop their social skills. Therefore, I believe that school is more than a place where you receive your education. Integrating online school systems as an international norm, however, means that interaction among students would probably have to be neglected to a certain extent. Even though I find your online education system a great idea, does your project also consider this possible downside (such as low sociability of young students)?

    Hi, thank you for such a detailed response. It means a lot to know that our proposal has reached your attention. The wording “miniature society” means that education is the first step students must take in order to receive stability. Which is why the downsides to this project could yes, be the low sociability of young students. However, sociability is not something that cannot be achieved outside of face-to face discussions. It can be received in many other forms including the fact that for any type of communication to work, young students must have the ability to communicate in the first place. Additionally, we will be taking measures to ensure students are fully able to communicate with each other including team projects.. etc.

    안녕하세요 SYD 팀,

    그룹 6에서 아동 포르노 학대를 연구한 개인 참가자 박수빈이라고 합니다. 본문에 적어주신 연구 계기와 연구 진행의 궁극적인 목표인 인권 존중에 관한 관점은 상당히 설득력 있었고 흥미로웠습니다. 라오스에서의 봉사 경험은 불균형 한 교육 시스템과 저소득 국가에 대한 비정상적인 현황을 잘 반영했으며, 이는 마찬가지로 SYD의 연구 목적을 파악하는 데 큰 도움이 되었습니다. 해결책 중 하나인 온라인 수업 솔루션 역시 흥미롭고 실제 적용 가능성이 높다고 생각합니다. 특히 11 페이지에서 UN의 역할은 무료 Wi-Fi, 소형 태블릿 등에 대한 액세스를 지원하자는 솔루션을 제시했는데, 이 부분에 관련하여 이미 몇몇 국가들은 사회적 약자들을 대상으로 비슷한 방법을 통해 원조하고 있다고 들은 바 있습니다. 만약 해당 과정에서 국가가 세금으로 금전적 지원을 하고 있다면 과연 어떠한 방식으로 보조하는 지 ( 단순히 기부형태인지 직접적으로 관련 사업에 관여하는지) 와 그에 해당하는 자세한 선례를 듣고자 합니다.

    Hi, I am Heejun Kim, a mentor of Gongmap.

    First of all, I enjoyed reading your paper and watching the video.
    The paper is so well-organized that I couldn’t believe high school students wrote it.

    However, for me, the contents seem to be too superficial. I think that it is just an arrangement of what is already being discussed in the international community.

    Education issues in developing countries fundamentally have so many “layers.” There are various hidden factors behind the inequality in education, such as ethnic differences, poverty, culture, etc.

    I’d like to hear your explanation of these factors.

    Thank you 🙂

      Hi, thanks for such an insightful response. While our team agrees that most of our solutions are based on a rather superficial element of education, we believe that it is definitely one of the most realistic. The “layers” you have mentioned are yes, very true. Education in developing countries rests on several different elements. What we hope to do by bringing technology to the table is to alleviate the pressure on students that struggle with barriers like you’ve mentioned: poverty, culture etc. We take education for granted and therefore expect others to do so too. But by bringing technology, which is substantially, more accessible for students below the poverty line and regardless of gender. Technology brings accessibility; which is what we hope to help students of the future with. Thank you

    We are Konkuk High School Student Association 1 of group 2!!
    First of all, your report and video were great because you considered the education and came up with many solutions.
    Your idea was well organized.
    However, I wonder about some.
    To begin with, you mentioned that you use the recordings that interpreters translated, however, if you do so, people who are taught might have a passive education. We want you to tell us the solution.
    In addition, when the number of the educated or intelligent interpreters are lacking in some areas, the number of the video to be translated and the number of students to translate may not match. What is your plan for it?

    Hi, my name is Heejoo Jung from team DONGNAHEECHAN. First of all, I would like to thank you for giving a spectacular presentation about your idea. However, I have some personal questions regarding to this proposal.
    Indeed, I believe that there may be significant advantages to students. However, what will happen to the teachers? As this program will be used by all students, teachers are going to be unnecessary. With only needing a few mentors and teachers, I see that many teachers will lose their jobs. I would like to hear how your group will fix and solve this problem. Thank you very much.

    Hello this is Kyu lee park from TAT.
    I found your solutions interesting, but there are some insights I would like to hear more about.

    First, what if the the developing country doesn’t have the necessary infrastructure (e.g electricity, internet access) to proceed with the implementation of your proposed solution regarding online education?
    If your goal is to provide education for everyone, these things should also be considered. What other solutions do you have for countries that suffer from this?

    Also, in a lot of developing countries, the government doesn’t have the existing budget to provide the infrastructure needed, let alone to enforce this policy. Even if we can get help from corporations to fund this project, how can you ensure its financial stability especially during difficult times of economic downturn like COVID-19?

    Thank you and I hope you take the time to answer my queries.

    Good day, I am Song Si Hyeon, a participant from De La Salle University, who wrote a proposal regarding health and wellbeing (SDG 1). I enjoyed watching your video and reading your proposal. It was such an intriguing and remarkable solution. Thank you for your informative presentation, I have learned a lot from it. However, I would like to raise a question. I believe that in order to have quality education, the teachers who will be teaching in an online platforms, as given by the suggested solution, need to be expertise or mastery. If not, this implementation cannot be said to be an effective improvement of education. Who can and/or how can the proficiency of the teachers be proven in order for them to provide a quality education to their online students?
    I am looking forward to hearing from you. Thank you!!

    Hello, I am Seo Ha Yoon in Group5 and I enjoyed watching your presentation and reading your paper. Especially, I liked your opinion as it is based on your own experience.
    I agree with your idea about online class. However, as it is currently controversial, online education has many problems, such as causing a lack of sociality. And I would like to ask you how you are going to improve these problems. Thank you.
