Abstract

There seems to be no country like Korea, where moral education is so emphasized in the formal education system. Every student has to take moral education classes two hours a week during 12 years of his/her stay, from primary to senior high school. Moral education class is required for all students by the centralized curriculum of moral education. The textbooks are made and provided exclusively by the Ministry of Education. In primary schools (6 years), pupils are offered two moral education textbooks (a main textbook and a story book) every semester for 6 years. In Middle (3 years) and High (3 years) schools, all the students are provided one or three moral education textbooks every year.
