The Educator – Learners work in the light of Krishnamurti’s teachings. The faculty is a well-knit, well-qualified, serious and purposeful group of individuals from diverse backgrounds.

The body of Educator – Learners comprises experienced teachers from KFI schools and new teachers. The educational and administrative processes and guidelines have been derived from the teachings from the experiences of KFI schools and other institutions.Among the staff, there are regular dialogues on educational issues, classroom processes, social and global concerns. These discussions in the ambience of a Krishnamurti school, provide the necessary dynamism for innovative change and movement.
