S. Korea's private education spending drops in 2011
SEOUL, Feb. 17 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's spending on private education dropped for a second straight year in 2011 as the number of students declined, affected by a chronically low birth rate, a report showed Friday.

South Korean parents spent a total of 20.1 trillion won (US$17.76 billion) last year on private education for their children, down 3.6 percent from a year earlier, according to the report by Statistics Korea.
