ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to explore the direction of democratic citizenship education by analyzing the political consciousness and election behavior of high school seniors in Daegu following the introduction of 18-year-old voting rights. The research results are as follows. First, high school seniors' political interest and understanding were low, but their political judgment and willingness to participate were high. Second, the turnout of students in Daegu in the 21st general election was low at 61.3%, but participants felt a sense of accomplishment and political efficacy after voting and gave a positive evaluation of enhancing political judgment. Third, the influence of the medium on the political consciousness and political judgment of high school seniors was high and the influence of schools and teachers was low. Fourth, it was analyzed that the school's curriculum and non-curricular activities and pre-election education for the 21st general election did not help political judgment form and vote.
