EDUCATING THE NEXT GENERATION IN UNIVERSAL VALUES? HINDU-RELATED NEW RELIGIOUS MOVEMENTS AND VALUES EDUCATION IN THE COMMON SCHOOL

Elisabeth Arweck, Eleanor Nesbitt, Robert Jackson

Abstract


This article compares two values education programmes currently available for UK
schools and the Hindu-related organisations – the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual
University and the Sathya Sai Service Organisation UK – with which they are
associated. Attention is paid to the development of the programmes and the reasons
for their implementation in certain schools. We conclude by considering the relevance
of the cultic provenance for schools’ uptake and whether the programmes are
Hindu in content.
