SEOUL, Jun. 26 (Korea Bizwire) — A new school curriculum on the Korean War has been published for elementary, middle, and high schools in the United States.
The Korean War Legacy Foundation, a non-profit organization in the U.S., announced the release of the new compilation of the Korean War jointly with the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) on Monday.
Titled “The Korean War and Its Legacy”, the book consists of 231 pages and was created with the backing of the South Korean Ministry of Patriots and Veterans Affairs.
There have been a series of prior publications on Korean history, but this is the first time that curriculum material has been published that specializes solely in the Korean War.
The compilation will first be distributed to some 15,000 teachers who are members of the NCSS. Starting in September, the curriculum will be introduced to elementary, middle, and high schools in the class of 2019-2020.
The curriculum is comprised of five chapters, focusing on interviews with veterans. Since 2012, the foundation has conducted interviews with some 1,300 veterans who fought in the Korean War.
