The 7th Educational Program was introduced and implemented with the goal of transitioning into student-centered education system. However, the new curriculum failed to settle properly due to lack of accurate understanding about the new curriculum system and implementation refusal of unilateral radical introduction. The 7th Educational Program maintained the philosophy and system and since been amended 5 times. The direction of revision of the curriculum improved the problems of application while gradually alleviating the existing policy. And the introduction of the curriculum was separated into categories, to allow for different acceptance decisions regarding each category. Accordingly, by accurately verifying the conditions after the 7th curriculum was introduced, the goal of this study is in comprehending the actual state and problems, through current possession of facility for each of the introduction categories and method of operation. The research analysis result of current possession of facility for each of the introduction categories and method of operation are as follows. First, with the exception of a few schools, the subject schools possess facilities of scale that makes the introduction of curriculum possible. Second, it was evident that the space for teachers to conduct research, work, and rest, were comparatively insufficient, when the student-centered curriculum was implemented. Third, partial implementation in which only a part of the curriculum is implemented and non-implementation in which the curriculum is rejected, were judged to be ambiguous in the level of curriculum implementation and had no major differences. The results above are expected to assist in seeking for appropriate development measures for our country's future curriculum and in setting the direction.
