'Alternative' History Textbook published in Korea

Even though Koreans claim about the flaws of some Japanese history textbooks, we are not sure about how accurate and objective the Korean history textbooks are, since there is only one kind of textbook for each elementary, middle, and high school which government's institution makes.

However, the attempt to make an alternative history textbook was made in 3 years ago, by the Textbook Forum with the goal of making a history textbook without biased ideology and the first contemporary and modern history of Korea textbook was published on Sunday.

It is a good movement to examine Korean history in a right way and could be a good example for other countries such as Japan and China where Korea is experiencing history controversy.
