Education and the Significance of Life is a penetrating inquiry into the nature and requirements of the kind of education which can lead to self-fulfillment and to world peace. Krishnamurti stresses self-knowledge and creating an environment free from fear to help create an atmosphere in which real education can take place.

Krishnamurti had a lifelong interest in education and founded schools on three continents. In this seminal book he critically examines what is wrong with education as it stands, relating it to society at large and the need for a new and different world order. The book speaks practically of such matters as class size and the function of leadership, while never losing the central vision that true culture is founded on the educators.

Reviewer: ELVA DOLZ from SALINAS, CA United States  
It is good that there is such a wonderful book on Education.   It is an option when giving a present.
Hopefully new teachers will consider this perspective and this new education will fluorish.

Krishnamurti's deep interest in education came from a deep compassion he had for everyone.
