Abstract:

This study attempted to look at citizenship-specific factors from the perspective of forming social capital by hypothesizing four conceptual domains – national identity, trust & sharing values, rights & responsibility, and active in public affairs- and the corresponding components of citizenship and analyzing how the citizenship-specific factors differ by age and generation in Korea. This study was the first step to develop internationally applicable standard to measure social capital for regional human resource development. Although the overall results indicated that level of Korean citizenship is reasonably high in terms of knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors, the conscious level for adults was lower than that for elementary and secondary school participants when concrete responses to the items within each conceptual domain were interpreted. Moreover, inconsistency between attitudes and behaviors was more obvious in adult group than in others. Such results give significant implication to Korean society and educational system. Korean education has mainly depended on knowledge attainment by rot memory to help students possess desirable citizenship. It causes conflict when the obtained theory-based knowledge is applied to practice. Accordingly, practice-based learning method of civic education is a key to overcome the problems revealed in this study.
