Abstract

Fiscal analysis of the Government-General of Korea reveals its indifference to education compared to other areas of administration. This article is an attempt to examine the Government-General's policies from the perspective of personnel appointments to high-ranking positions in educational administration. This study focuses on fourteen directors of the Educational Affairs Bureau and thirteen chiefs of the Educational Affairs Section. Possessing the final say in policymaking in colonial Korea, these officials are given attention instead of Governors-General or Political Resident Generals (seimu so kan). In addition, Educational Affairs Section chiefs had more authority than other section chiefs (Religion, Social Education, etc.). Resulting from the analysis of their academic and professional backgrounds, as well as their evaluations, which appeared in newspapers and journal, are the following conclusions: 1) in many cases, the expertise of the directors and the chief s as educational administrators was disputable; 2) this fact displays both the Governor-General's lack of emphasis on educational administration and the relatively low prestige of these positions; and 3) the Educational Affairs Bureau had close relationship with police agencies in colonial Korea in terms of personnel transfer (that is, police officials were often transferred to positions of responsibility in educational administration).
