Plan to Prevent Gambling Addiction among the Students in South Korea

The plan is offered by the South Korean government and is one of the latest moves to stop gambling in the nation. About 200,000 students and 600 schools all over the country will get educational materials on the subject of healthy Internet use. Besides, professional counselors will visit schools. Their aim is to assess the student’s addiction, and the students being in the danger of getting addicted will get counseling six times a year. To say more, 20 schools, that is approximately 17,000 students, have adopted a “no-internet day” on which students won’t be allowed to use Internet for their entertainment and recreation.

A collaboration of several ministries such as the ministries of Information and Communication, Education and Human Resources, Culture and Tourism and the Youth Protection Committee, is expected to take place. They intend to implement and promote a number of activities that will provide an alternative to the use of Internet for the sake of recreation.
