A Learning Curve: Educational Options for ISKCON Children

When it comes to education, ISKCON has learned a lot.

In the sixties and seventies, when our society was but a tottering
toddler itself, we had young children with an undeniable need: to be educated. Not even considering outside schools as an option, we began
to teach them ourselves without first educating teachers.

The result was catastrophic. Child abuse on many different levels destroyed our childrens' lives and shattered parent and teacher morale. ISKCON schools around the world began to close down, and the traditional Gurukula boarding school system collapsed like a pack of dominoes.
