a new education forum
- I would like to draw your attention to a global internet forum that has
recently been initiated, with a focus on education. This is under the
auspices of Kinfonet (The Krishnamurti Information Network) and details can
be found on the webpage: http://www.kinfonet.org/discussion_forums/ .
I feel this venture has significance in facilitating communication among
those deeply concerned with the part education has to play in bringing about
fundamental change in the individual and society. Although the forum should
be of interest to those already concerned with Krishnamurti's words, it may
also be helpful to those working in conventional education, at the
Universities and colleges of Education, home education, and so on.
Below is a brief formal introduction to the forum.

The Kinfonet Internet Education Forum
A global internet forum with its focus on education has recently been
initiated. This is under the auspices of Kinfonet (The Krishnamurti
Information Network) and details can be found on the webpage:
The education forum is a venue for those concerned with the possibility of
bringing about fundamental change in the individual and so in society. As
with all the Kinfonet forums, enquiry is the key.
In addition to those involved in Krishnamurti-related education,
contributions are welcome from teachers, academics, parents, students and
anyone concerned with the education of the whole human being.
Apart from dialogue, the forum can be used for posting articles,
classifieds, and information about schools, gatherings, new projects, and
The following statement by Krishnamurti reflects the intended spirit of the
"Authority, as 'the one who knows', has no place in learning. The educator
and the student are learning together"
