ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to conduct an in-depth analysis of the policies related to the development and promotion of school safety in Japan and their current status in order to find implications for South Korea. We analyzed the changes in Japan’s education policies concerning school safety, focusing on the operation of “Safety-Promoting School”. School safety education in Japan started as disaster prevention education, but became more powerful since the two recent earthquakes. The two characteristics of Japan’s school safety education are as follows. First, it emphasizes the contents about safety in all subjects in link with the national educational curriculum. Second, the 2nd plan of school safety promotion emphasizes a more professional approach through the system of school safety coordinators. Currently, South Korea has no disaster drills in the general curriculum and should reinforce school safety in their curriculum according to the regional and school characteristics, in conjunction with local communities and government offices.
