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