- The purpose of this discussion is to analye the scope and degree of· the connections between curriculum and textbook in use today. The discussion is based on the premise that the contents of textbook must be consistent in the aims of education law and other related rules. The education law has some articles leaving curriculum and textbook in ministerial and presidential ordinance respectively. But it is rather peculiar case compared with some foreign ones. The connection between the education law and the curriculum is not strong enough to identify any articles or descriptions directly matched one by one. Prescriptions on textbook does not play any roles of connecting curriculum with textbook, but it controls the management of textbook publishing, distributing, price-assessing, etc. The guiding principles on writing textbook in general or in given subject-matters play very important roles of directing the scope and degree of every textbook. The consequences of this discussicn is summarized as follows. First, all of the laws-ordinances-guides should be harmonized hierarchically in their contents and levels. Second, stronger and more various connection should be established especially in educational aims-goals-objectives in every related laws. Third, curriculum should be specified so detail as to connect it with contents of textbooks. Forth, aims and contents should be concretized gradually from the general to the specific, keeping the essential qualities originated in precedent provision. Fifth, Specialized persons egaged in curriculum construction-revision process should prepare the guide lines for writing textbook.
