(KRISHNAMURTI SI) Reflections on Freedom as the Real Goal of Education
This paper looks at how studying in The School (Krishnamurti Foundation of India), where Krishnamurti’s philosophy permeates most informal and formal interactions, has helped to make sense of some of the contradictions that the author experienced in the immediate context of my life in school and after. This is a personal essay that will relate the author’s experiences at the school. The author hopes that larger ideas that permeated The School and which guided its teachers and their pedagogy would resonate with others who completed some part of their education at Krishnamurti schools. This essay would be also useful for folks who want to know more about how students at Krishnamurti schools experience learning.
