N. Korean Colleges in 'Shutdown,' and Did Not Even Admit Freshman Class
Yang Hee-jung, Washington
Last week, after returning from his visit to N. Korean colleges, a Russian expert on Korean affairs criticized the extended shutdown of colleges in Pyongyang from June this year to April next year in an attempt to build 'Strong and Powerful Nation,' calling it a waste of human resources unheard of even in socialist Russia(Soviet Union?.)
Yang Hee-jung reports:
Georgy Toloraya, Director of Korean Programs at Russian Academy of Sciences, said that it does not help producing N. Korea's professional talents that they shut down colleges for 10 months so that they could conscript students for construction of 100,000 housing units to make 'Strong and Powerful Nation.'
Toloraya: In former Soviet Union, there was military service for a year or two, but college students were exempt. It is a policy to raise professional talents through advanced education. N. Korea does not have such a policy (now,) and mobilized students to build 100,000 housing units in Pyongyang. If students miss out nearly a year of education, the quality of professional talents would fall.
Toloraya: I was told that N. Korean colleges did not even admit freshman class this year. Professors were giving special lectures to high school students at empty campuses. It is not just the colleges I visited. I was told that it is happening to all colleges.

Perhaps someone reported seeing a man with a gun on campus...
Yeah, a whole regiment of them.:-)
A little Po Pot action going on here.
1. Coups start in the barracks
2. Revolutions start on campii
Ever notice how worried Cuban commies call out students and soldiers to help with the harvest..? That’s to split them up, make them busy, and remove them from the “TROUBLE INCUBATORS”.
If they do stuff like this, it means:
1. The economy is in the dumps big-time
2. There is a whiff of revolt in the air
3. BOTH of the above
Now they are sending in troops from Guard Bureau, the palace guards of Kim's, to rein on the problem They are said to live in sealed environment free of contamination from outside. Still odds are not high that they will stay âclean.â Some locals in the area reportedly giving them three months before they turn âdirty.â
