High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Hagwon (Korean: ) (also hagweon or hakwon) is the Korean-language word for a for-profit private institute, academy or cram-school prevalent in South Korea. The term is also sometimes used to describe similar institutions operated by Korean Americans in the United States. The industry faces criticism because it is seen as creating an unequal footing between the poor and rich in Korea, while some see hagwons as filling a need not being adequately met by the public school system. Children of all ages often attend hagwons, even those in the pre-school age bracket.

It is not uncommon for students to be enrolled in several hagwon of different subject areas at once in addition to their normal school attendance. Hagwons often specialize in subjects like mathematics, foreign languages, science, arts, or music.

Many hagwons also have adults as students, particularly those dedicated to teaching the English language. Some in Korean society view hagwons and their owners negatively because of the perception that these schools have caused economic issues for many families or been a factor in the disparity between the education levels of different social classes. In 2008 it was reported that there were over 70,000 hagwons in South Korea with 47 percent of them focused on high school enrollment.
