This chapter aims to review the policy development of life education in Taiwan. Life education has been implemented in Taiwan since the 1990s. There have been three stages of the development of life education in Taiwan, which are: (1) Infancy phase of life education (1996–1999); (2) “A hundred flowers blooming” phase (1999–2002); and (3) Integration and building consensus (2003–2004). The issues that might have triggered the policy process and phases related to the design and implementation of the life education policy are highlighted in the chapter. The final part discusses the major tensions and ambiguities of launching the life education policy. Reflections in this book chapter provide meaningful insight and prospect for the development of life education in Taiwan.
