Abstract

The purpose of this study is trying to provide the development direction of subject classroom system in Korea by comparing and analyzing creating space and actual condition of subject classrooms in Japan. Unlike Korea where the government introduces and applies the subject classroom system to entire middle schools in no time, such developed countries as USA, Europe and Japan have experienced the subject classroom system for long time. The reason why we compare cases of Japan is that curriculum, changing process and background of school facilities in Japan are similar to those of Korea and Japan introduces and operates it as customized unit school. This study consists of literature review, situation analysis, research on the actual condition and comparison analysis. In the stage of literature review, policy directions which influence recently on changing creating space of school facilities and related preceding studies are analyzed. (The rest omitted)
