This paper aims to propose an education method for schools to foster democratic attitudes in youths for resolving social conflicts such as gender inequality. Gender education is not a goal as a means or function, such as personal success or being wealthy, but is an education method with a moral and ethical purpose to foster well-being, in which individuals are respected and communicate well whit each other. Thus, looking into gender inequality present in the current education environments of South Korea, the paper explores ways to practice education methods to resolve such issues. The writers’ analysis of gender inequality in education environments confirmed stereotypes regarding gender such as patriarchy, traditional masculinity and femininity still playing out as a ‘hidden curriculum’. This paper proposes three educational schemes to help people realize that these problems do not stem from thoughtful consideration for the unique characteristics of gender but from a place of discrimination, as well as to pursue communal peace for all genders. First, classrooms should be made available for open and intersubjective dialogue among teachers and students. Second, students should be provided with a safe environment to share personal experiences, feeling each other’s pain, and to build a sense of empathy. Third, students should be taught a method of critical thinking that enables them to analyze an issue from an objective perspective. In order for these to work in practice, it is necessary for schools and teachers to recognize the importance of gender education and the need for its immediate implementation.
