This paper explores the meaning of development and the limitations of economic development which centers on capitalism, and argues that by understanding the role of education in development, we can overcome some of these limitations. The study discusses definitions of development, especially the concept of ‘good change'. Then, the case of South Korea is considered in order to illustrate the links between development and education. This paper puts emphasis on the need for a balance between materialism and humanism when understanding the relationship between development and education.
