推動現代化的十二年國教似乎已是當前台灣社會的共同期待，但教育部卻不對十二年國教的實施期程與內容做正式的宣示與承諾。究竟十二年國教是不是好的政策？教育部推動十二年國教的躊躇不前究竟有何難言之隱或實質困難？學生家長及社會大眾宜如何看待十二年國教的規劃與實施？本文從政策的角度，分析十二年國教的困境，並在觀念上尋求可能的出路，藉供主管機關決策與行動之參考。 The National Union of Parents' Organizations made an appeal for 12-Year Public Education to the Ministry of Education by taking a demonstration on July 12, 2009. However, the Ministry of Education did not make any promise for a clear timetable for the initiation and implementation of the 12-Year Public Education. Why did the Ministry of Education hesitate to declare her position on the policy of the 12-Year Public Education? Was the 12-Year Public Education in term of policy even strongly desired by parents but not necessary for the educational development? Was the policy of the 12-Year Public Education not feasible under the circumstance that the public was still short of common understanding in the content and form of the 12-Year Public Education? Or the only reason was that the Ministry of Education was not ready to take actions for the policy initiation and implementation? Overall, what would be problems of the policy of 12-Year Public Education? And what would be solutions for those problems? This paper intended to answer these questions and provide personal insight for further thinking on the policy of the 12-Year Public Education.
