The ultimate goal of education is to cultivate people and shape their character. The Koreans of yesteryear strived to provide such education in the old seodang (village schools), hyanggyo (public schools) and seowon (private academies). In these institutions, human character and integrity were the core of learning. At that time, students were taught the importance of character and ways to lead a righteous life. Now when society no longer benefits from the values of traditional Korean education, the purpose of this book is to show the educational principles upheld by Koreans' ancestors and prompt readers to reflect on what true education is and what they should do. The chapters are divided into Koreans and Education, Seodang and Hyanggyo, and Seowon and Seonggyungwan, including the pictures of historical records and educational places. Choi Wan-gee, the author of this book, teaches Korean history and educational history as a faculty member of the social studies education department in Ewha University. He affirms that the right way to teach people is in the educational ideas of Koreans' ancestors.
