This Book consists of six discussion that Krishnamurti had with teachers of Rajghat Besant School and Rishi Valley School in 1984. It may be regarded as an introduction to his vision of education for those who, seeing the collapse of educational systems in the modern world, feel therefore the importance of their being teachers of a different kind.  Throughout his life Krishnamurti maintained that teachers had a special responsibility in that they had to nurture not only the academic side of a child but also, and more importantly, the psychosocial side, which is what is generally taken for granted in modern education.  For Krishnamurti, the educational setting is only a context for exploring the larger issues of human existence. The relevance of his vision is certainly not confined to the teaching profession, and so these discussions are meant for all-teachers or taught, professionals or parents, young or old.
