Abstract
The present paper is prepared to find out the charateristics of the subject organization of our secondary school curricula in their quality and quantity compared with those of some other advanced nations in education. Our secondary school curricula has been revised in various occasions in overall or in part. But there can not be found any consistent directions or principles to pursue in their revisions, but can be found only some increase or decrease in their numbers of subjects and class-hours alloted for each subject. The existing ones have some characteristics compared with those of Japan and Taiwan. Ours have "national history" and "chinese writing" as a independent subject, but "health education" and "moral education" is less emphased than those of Japan. On the other side, Taiwan intergrates some subjects into single broad area of subjects, but a few selective subjects in its middle school curriculum are rather specialized. Any idea to campare the school curricula of Korea directly with those of other western nations can not be developed because their educational systems and curricula are remarkably different from ours. Some implications can be summarized as follows; first, cultural traditions of a nation is the most important factor in constructing curriculum. School curriculum is the nimiature of the tradition, present circumstances and ideals of the nation. Therefore our cultural traditions accumulated along with the long history should be reflected in our curriculum more deliberately. Second, all the curricula investigated in this paper emphasise whole-rounded person in middle school and basic foundations of furthur academic career in higher school. Ours should be examined continously in terms of the whole-person and basic academic foundation as a criterion for secondary school curriculum construction. Third, the distinctive feature of our cultural tradition and general trend seen in foreign nations should be harmonized in curriculum. For the purpose of this harmonization, we should try to find out the point marked by vertical investigation of our educational tradition and horizontal survey of foreign countries.
