n this article the authors examine the reasons for the establishment of Hindu schools in the Netherlands and how the Dutch system of education facilitates these and other voluntarily separate schools. In particular, the authors explore the manner in which Hindu schools aim to cultivate and sustain attachments to their own group through a culturally specific approach to learning and belonging that promises greater educational equality. The authors argue that the special features of Dutch Hindu schools, as a form of voluntary separation, may better facilitate and promote equality of educational opportunity than other options available to the Dutch Hindu community.
