DOI Web Site 5 References Open Access

Abstract

<p>The purpose of this study is to compare some details of environmental education (EE) implemented in schools and identify the differences between such programs in Japan and Korea. In particular, the study examines the difference brought about by the presence or absence of an independent subject. This is because previous studies reveal that Korean schools have an independent subject named Environment, however, its adoption rate is low. The study examines the following aspects to clarify the status of EE in Japanese and Korean schools: first, classes related to the environment that are offered in the two countries; second, specific details of the national curriculum for EE as an independent subject taught in Korea; and, third, the diffusion system surrounding schools in Japan and Korea. Consequently, it is suggested that having an independent subject makes it clear that even if its adoption rate is low, it contributes to clarifying the identity of EE (concept, learning, etc.).</p>
