South Korea's government has announced controversial plans to control the history textbooks used in secondary schools.
Currently, secondary schools can choose from textbooks published by eight different publishing companies.
However, the government says that from 2017, all secondary schools must only use history textbooks issued by the state.
The move has sparked fierce criticism from academics and opposition parties.
The government has argued that current history textbooks are too left-leaning and encourage anti-American and pro-North Korea feelings, the BBC's Kevin Kim in Seoul reports.
