Issues in the Teaching of Hinduism in American K-12 Schools

The history of India and Hinduism is taught in 6th and 7th grade social studies classes to nearly 4 million American children each year, along with the history of Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism and sometimes Jainism. The course material on Hinduism is negative in tone and scholastically deficient. This presentation will explain how the course material is created and adopted, and how Hindus can improve the process.

Presented by Acharya Arumuganathaswami, managing editor of Hinduism Today, at the Uberoi Conference, held October 1, 2011, at Loyola-Marymount University in Los Angeles, October 1, 2011.
