(LEAD) 43 bottom-ranked universities to face cut in state subsidies next year
By Kim Eun-jung
SEOUL, Sept. 5 (Yonhap) -- The education ministry selected 43 private universities Monday that will have their state subsidies partly cut or denied next year as part of a government drive to weed out poorly managed schools to address the problem of rising tuitions.

The ministry said it has chosen the universities in consultation with advisory bodies based on the results of a university evaluation that used criteria, such as the employment rate of graduates, the yearly enrollment rate and the number of full-time instructors.
