The new head of education in Seoul, South Korea, says free school meals will be provided for elementary-school students this fall, and the same may also be done at the middle-school level. Kwak No-hyun also criticised the city's teacher-evaluation system, which bases part of the assessment on reviews by parents and fellow teachers. "Teacher evaluation should be based on students' actual development and feedback, making the program an opportunity for mutual understanding and better communication between teachers and students," he said.
