“Schools Within the Four Gates” co-hosted by the Seoul Museum of History and the Seoul Jungbu District Office of Education
- Exhibition held from Tue, Apr. 21 to Sun, Jun. 28 in the lobby of the Seoul Museum of History
- Illumination of the schools within the four gates of Seoul as the starting point and center of Korea’s history of education
- Introduction of materials discovered through the Seoul Jungbu District Office of Education’s Scholastic Records Submission Contest
This exhibition examines the historic schools within the four gates of Seoul (i.e. Dongdaemun, Seodaemun, Namdaemun, and Bukdaemun) in collaboration with the Seoul Jungbu District Office of Education.
Schools within these four gates served as the starting point for Korea’s history of education.
This exhibition takes a closer look at the schools within the four gates that have kept its institutional standing since Korea’s Age of Enlightenment through related materials such as the writings of Yi Kang, the Prince Imperial Uihwa-gun, written to the Paichai Hakdang School, the photographs of Ewha Hakdang School, and the photo albums of the Seoul Gwanghee Elementary School.
Although some schools closed their doors or moved to Mok-dong and Jamsil following the implementation of the high school equalization policy, these schools within the four gates carried the torch and kept their heritage, remaining at the center of Korea’s history of education in name and reality.
