ABSTRACT

Hyo (Filial Piety) education seems to be one of the most important things to do in the present days in which violence is rampant in homes and society. Effective hyo education from the elementary school days would lead to happier schools, homes, and society. With this in mind, the present study attempts to analyze, in the framework of hyo education curriculum, the moral education textbooks for the 1st and 2nd graders based on the 7th National Curriculum. Four out of five areas of the right life in the 7th Curriculum moral education (Right Life) textbooks for the 1st and 2nd graders are related to hyo education. They are "Doing My Work on My Own", "Observing Manners", "Considerate to Others", and "Keeping Order". The ethical and moral contents of Western philosophy, Judaism, Christianity,Oriental philosophy, Confucianism, Buddhism, and Taoism need to be included in the hyo ethics framework if it is to function as a generalizable hyo framework for the content analysis of the 7th Curriculum moral (Right Life)education textbooks. The generalizable framework consists of four components:(1) Obedience and Commandment, (2) Endearment and Respect for Person, (3)Sustenance and Longevity, and (4) Representation and Religion. The contents of hyo education can be generalizable through these four universal virtues. The analysis revealed that the 7th Curriculum moral education textbooks contain much of two of the four components: Obedience and Commandment as well as Endearment and Respect for Person. Continued and caring hyo education from early childhood can make the children grow up to be good citizens. Hyo education will be revitalized and the future of the country will become bright with the students who are filially pious to their parents, love their friends, and respect elderly people.
